Rural Leadership for Community Change

Overview: 

Rural Leadership for Community Change was a program to develop leadership courses for students to become leaders and change agents in their own communities. Faculty at six rural community and tribal colleges developed a leadership curriculum that prepares students to become leaders for community change. The new curriculum combines classroom learning with hands-on community projects and serves as a model for other rural community and tribal colleges across the United States. The program was funded by the federal Department of Education's Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE), which supports innovative educational reform projects that can serve as national models for the improvement of postsecondary education.
