To complete the leadership development program successfully, participants are to actively participate in the four Foundational Components and the three Self-Designed Experiences of the Rufus M. Jones Institute for Leadership curriculum.
Each semester, a list of specific programs that are designed to meet the criteria for each of the components is compiled and distributed. Many of the programs are created with leadership development, theory, and practice in mind. Others are designed to address specific fields and niches, and will enhance one's understanding of and experience with leadership. This listing will change every semester, but there will always be courses offered that meet component requirements. Only those components that have been listed may meet the respective requirements.
It is highly encouraged for participants to document how each requirement is met by using the Audit Form . Participants will want to use this form to help keep track of which requirements have been met and which have not; it also serves as a reflection tool when looking back over one's experiences in the program.
