To equip you with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes as you develop into an engaged and active leader.
Our society needs leaders. CCA needs leaders. We want you to have access to leadership programs that adequately serve your needs, while increasing your involvement on campus - which contributes to enhancing your marketability in the job search process.
You! If you are interested in learning more about yourself, who you are in groups, how to be more active in your communities, and how to be a more mindful and respectful individual, then apply!
The time commitment will vary based on your class, work, and family responsibilities, however, it is estimated that you will spend about 20 hours over the course of 2 - 4 semesters. For example:
You will learn how to increase your knowledge about leadership, develop specific skills, and learn to be more mindful of your leadership attitudes and beliefs. You will participate in 8 different sessions, 2 sessions in each of the 4 leadership areas, which are Individual, Group, Community, and Inclusive Excellence. Check out the chart below for more detailed information.
Below is a quick, step-by-step overview of the program and how it will work.
1. Make sure you meet the requirements, which are 1) Be a current CCA student and 2) Be in good academic standing with the College.
2. Complete an online intent to participate form.
3. Attend a social to meet other students in the program and the program coordinators. Socials are to be determined for Spring semester.
4. Engage in 8 sessions, 2 in each of the 4 leadership areas (Individual, Group, Community, and Inclusive Excellence). A session is a workshop, lecture, film viewing, and/or group discussion focusing on one of the four leadership areas listed above. Sessions are facilitated by CCA faculty and staff.
5. Reflect on every session by journaling, using the online form, or chatting with another person. You will be given a journal to make it easier to reflect!
6. Create a capstone project that brings together all the learning you have done throughout the program, what we call leadership learning. This project can be a formal PowerPoint presentation, physical piece of art, poem, anything that shares what you have learned throughout the program.
7. Present your capstone project to the Leadership Champions Board, a group of faculty and staff.
8. Attend the Ceremony to receive acknowledgement and a CCA leadership certificate!
