Promoting Student Engagement through an Academic Leadership Certificate Program
Langone, Christine A.
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v11 n1 p105-117 2006
The University of Georgia's Interdisciplinary Certificate in Leadership and Service is an undergraduate academic program designed to enhance college students' preparation for leadership in their communities and organizations through service-learning. This form of engagement with the community prepares students to face the technical and social challenges of the future through cross-disciplinary collaboration, scholarship, and application. The article discusses requirements of the certificate, the collaborative nature of the program across multiple colleges at the university, and the impact of institutionalizing leadership and service by providing a mechanism for both students and faculty to document activity in experiential education and its outcomes. The certificate program or any of its components can serve as a model for other colleges or leadership programs.
