college students learning taking part in higher education leadership programs

Duration: 1 hour

About the Webinar

Higher education leadership programs equip student learners with the skills they need to succeed in their career. That varies from Associate, Undergraduate, Graduate, Doctorate, and Executive/Continuing Education programming.

However, that doesn’t just mean technical skills. More and more, leadership development is becoming an important part of the higher education experience, and with good reason. Higher education leadership programs help student learners strengthen communication and collaboration skills, become more agile and resilient, and ultimately learn how to affect positive change in the world around them. In addition, having strong higher education leadership programs help increase the value of the educational experience. 

In this webinar, our CCL experts in higher education discuss the current challenges schools face from a leadership curriculum perspective. They’ll highlight ways higher education institutions are developing the leaders of tomorrow – whether they’re undergrads or graduate students.

Our CCL team will be joined by David Taliaferro, Commandant of Cadets at Cal Maritime Academy. We’ll be highlighting his work incorporating a robust leadership curriculum for cadets and the challenges that inevitably come along with an initiative this size.

What You’ll Learn

In this webinar you’ll learn:

  • Current challenges in student learning leadership curriculum
  • How institutions are pivoting with virtual and online/digital offerings
  • Ideas to generate new revenue and expand student learning offerings
