Chancellor’s Leadership Program

The Chancellor’s Leadership Program (CLP) is a leadership development program guided by the Social Change Model of Leadership Development.  Open to all majors, CLP offers a co-curricular, three and a half year, guided cohort experience for students who commit to learning how leadership development will contribute to their education and their communities.

Students selected for CLP participate in a weekly seminar held on Thursdays from 3:30-5:00 pm that beings in the second semester of their first year and continues through senior year. Throughout the program CLP Fellows are expected to complete a number of activities including identifying their leadership style and strengths, participating in leadership retreats, creating meaningful dialogue with their cohort peers, active community service, and the completion of a Social Change Legacy Project. The Social Change Legacy Project provides students with an opportunity to create lasting social changing in their communities focusing on a social topic of their choice. Fellows are assigned a CLP Cohort Advisor whose role is to facilitate seminars and meet with each Fellow regularly to discuss additional opportunities for personal leadership growth.
