The Leadership MCC Program is a program for providing incentives for students who aspire to become leaders.
Leadership MCC is an academic based program that utilizes the co-curricular setting for students to practice the skills of leadership learned in coursework. Two specific courses provide the basis for this, though other courses may be completed to assist faculty and students who wish to add leadership content to the regular course objectives. The program will emphasize these core principles of leadership and seek evidence of their application in other program activities. Students will meet periodically through the semester to interact with one another in a seminar setting and to discuss the leadership questions found in current events.
Students in this program will not only learn general principles of leadership, they will confront the subject in practice as well as theory. Students who opt for this program and complete the below-listed requirements will earn recognition by award at graduation. At a certain point level, the student would receive an Affidavit Award that would attest to completion of the general program. At a greater point level, the student would be eligible for a Medallion Award, which would include and encompass the Affidavit of the lower tier.
The core of the program is two courses (3 credits each); these are elective choices in students' degree programs and are transferable. The courses have no prerequisites and are not sequenced; they can be taken in any order and at any time during the students' academic careers, and at any time they have enrolled in the Leadership MCC.
For points to be awarded, the students must earn a 'C' grade or better:
Students may also take a third course from the list below, as augmentation to the incentive plan.
Points for these courses will be awarded when the student completes an essay or course project that treats the content of that course relative to leadership issues. To earn points toward the Leadership Program, the student work would have to be approved by faculty member designated by the Leadership Program Coordinator.
In order to receive the Medallion Award, the student would be required to take both core courses. The Affidavit could be earned by students who only sat for one of the core courses.
Total Points for Affidavit: 1000
Total Points for Medallion: 1250
Community efforts require prior approval from Leadership Coordinator and must be documented by a member of the community.
