This community engagement, leadership program is 10-month experience for professionals interested in learning more about the application of their leadership skills. The program is issue-based, meaning that each monthly seminar will focus on an issue and examine it from multiple perspectives. Through a series of speakers, tours and exercises, participants will gather a variety of information about the subject, synthesize it through group discussion and wrestle with the question, "what do we do now?"
