Bachelor's Completion Program

Leadership is a capacity — rather than a skill — one which we need now more than ever and one that develops through a longer learning process. As we find we need new ideas and approaches in the workplace, we realize that understanding leadership is necessary to move forward in the 21st century. Leadership means working with true collaboration to address problems and issues. It’s about adapting to change and working with and through relationships.
