Curriculum

The Chancellor’s Leadership Corps Scholarship Program has a four year curriculum guide. Class enrollment is limited to CLC Scholars which ensures smaller class sizes and class engagement. Each course is designed with the scholars and their futures in mind. All coursework is interactive, engaging, hands-on and designed upon the foundations of theory. Year 1 and Year 2 courses are required for all scholars whereas Year 3 and Year 4 courses are strongly encouraged.

Year 1: First Year Experience

The CLC First Year Experience course is a two semester course. During the fall semester, the focus is ensuring a smooth transition from high school to college and helping scholars map out their four year journey through college. During the spring semester, the focus is on developing the scholars as college scholarly leaders.

Year 2: Leadership Practicum

The CLC Leadership Practicum (sophomore year of program) is a fall only course. During this time, scholars learn about the foundations of a professional leader. Specific coursework is geared towards their career aspirations. One specific component of this course is for scholars to job shadow an individual that shares their same career aspiration.

Year 3: Career Practicum 1

The CLC Career Practicum 1 (junior year of program) is designed around internships and experiencing study abroad. While neither is a requirement of the program, the experience and knowledge gained through these experiences are irreplaceable. One specific component of this is for scholars to begin developing a resume, portfolio, and begin practicing interview skills.

Year 4: Career Practicum 2

The CLC Career Practicum 2 (senior year of program) is designed to help scholars finalize their resume, complete their portfolio, master interview skills, and begin applying for jobs and/or graduate school. The ultimate goal is for scholars to have either a career, graduate school, or graduate assistant position waiting for them upon graduation.
