Collin Opens Leadership Class for Spring Semester

December 1, 2006 - The deadline to enroll in Collin County Community College District's (Collin) Student Leadership Academy II: Advanced Leadership Theory (SLA II) is Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2007.

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. SLA II will offer an in-depth study of the Nature, Personal Side, Power and Influence of Leadership, Contingency Approaches and Theories, The Mind, Heart and Morality of Leadership, Follower-ship, Organizational Design and Leading Change.

The students earn three credit hours upon completion. Only 25 students will be accepted into the spring LEAD 2301 course. Students interested in the course must have a 2.5 cumulative grade point average and fill out an application packet available at the Center for Scholarly & Civic Engagement office located in F105 at the Spring Creek Campus or via electronically from rhughes@collin.edu.

The application must be completed in its entirety to be considered for the class. There is no prerequisite for LEAD 2301. LEAD 2301 classes are scheduled every Friday from 9-11:45 am in the spring semester.

LEAD 1301 (Introduction to Leadership Theory) classes are offered at the same time during the fall 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. Successful graduates of SLA I do not need to complete the application.

Applications are available at the Center for Scholarly & Civic Engagement (CSCE) in Room F105 at the Spring Creek Campus, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano. Students may also contact the CSCE Director Regina M. Hughes for more information at rhughes@collin.edu or call 972.881.5900.
