This special Institute is designed for students who exhibit leadership qualities and seek opportunities to expand their leadership potential beyond the current academic curriculum at Concordia. Students in the Institute will be given opportunities through lecture, self-study, and experience in a collaborative and focused learning community to see the heart and skills of a Christian leader and to develop their leadership capacity.
The uniquely Christian nature of the University and its publicly stated intention to honor Christ in what we say and do will guide the work of CTXCLI. The Institute is designed to foster within each participant a deeper understanding of Christian leadership principles and to explore creative leadership concepts.
The inaugural class for CTXCLI will participate in seven seminars focusing on “The Heart and the Skills of a Leader.” Participants will explore the “who” and the “what” of leadership:
Who are you? What is your story? What's in your heart?
What skills are essential for successful, effective leadership?
An introductory fee of $150 per participant will be assessed to cover partial Institute costs. This fee will be waived for peer mentors.
In addition, ten senior class students will be accepted as peer mentors for the Institute. Each mentor will receive specialized training and will work with a small group of Institute participants following each of the seven sessions.
Participation in the Institute is available for sophomore, junior or senior class CTX students and requires written recommendation from a minimum of two members of the CTX faculty or staff.
A maximum of 25 participants will be accepted for this unique and prestigious opportunity.
Consideration for Institute participant and mentor acceptance will be given to students with a minimum of 3.0 GPA. Applicants must also possess demonstrated or potential leadership traits or characteristics.
Interested students should apply via the application form below. Institute leaders will notify applicants of acceptance or non-acceptance no later than December 6, 2013. Click links below to access forms.
