LEAD 485 - Leadership Practicum


Credits: (3)
 

Tier I 485 LEAD (1 credit)

LEAD 485 is a non-billable iLEAD Program in conjunction with academic, service, and student life departments. A part of a three-tiered mentorship in which students can achieve 1 (silver), 2 (gold) or 3 (platinum) academic credits respectively for 40, 80, or 120 leadership service hours, its purpose is to provide guided academic leadership training and practicum mentoring. If a student completes all components of the program by graduation, he or she can earn only a maximum of three credits. A student can take one credit at a time with the same or different facilitators.

In the case of those associated with personal training pursuing certification, students receive two credits for their academic efforts in anatomy/physiology and one credit from iLEAD. Having received three credits in total for this experience, students will have expended the maximum amount of credits iLEAD can offer and thus cannot apply for Tier II or III.

Tier III students will be given academic context of civil society in American history, understanding of the human person, social and behavioral theory, the roles of civil society within this context, and religion in various social problems. Six speakers from faith-based organizations will share their mission, challenges, and successes so students can receive a larger view of societal need and how the university can help.
