Ethical Leadership Certificate
The Ethical Leadership Certificate (ELC), facilitated by the Center for Leadership’s Student Leadership Assistants, is a program that helps you develop integrity and purpose as a leader. ELC sessions help participants gain insight into their personal development. This certificate can help you develop self-awareness as an ethical and intentional leader. The sessions incorporate our integrity and purpose competency into your leadership toolkit.
