Student Leadership Academy Seeks Students for Fall 2006

June 19, 2006 - The deadline to enroll in Collin County Community College District's (Collin) Student Leadership Academy has been extended to Friday, July 21.

The Student Leadership Academy is a rigorous semester-long leadership experience unique to Collin. The course is designed to encourage leadership, integrity, professional development, scholarship and service. The curriculum fosters skills through lecture, guest speakers, student facilitation and team projects. The students earn three credit hours upon completion.

Only 25 students will be accepted into the fall LEAD 1301 course. Students interested in the course must have a 2.5 cumulative grade point average and fill out an application packet. The application must be completed in its entirety to be considered for the class.

There is no prerequisite for LEAD 1301.

LEAD 1301 classes are scheduled every Friday from 8:45 a.m.-noon in the fall semester. LEAD 2301 classes are offered at the same time during the spring semester. Both courses will be at the Preston Ridge Campus, 9700 Wade Blvd. in Frisco.

The Student Leadership Academy is modeled after Leadership Plano, Leadership Frisco, Leadership Allen and Citizenship McKinney prototypes.

As part of the application packet, students participating in the Student Leadership Academy must submit an academic transcript, three letters of recommendation and an essay.

Applications are available at the Center for Scholarly & Civic Engagement in Room F105 at the Spring Creek Campus, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano.
