Every field requires people who can step up and lead others in effective and personal ways. Parkside offers a leadership certificate as an interdisciplinary program for students looking to hone specific leadership skills.
Leadership skills comprise a variety of personal and professional traits, including self-assessment and public speaking; exposure to other modes of communication; the ability to identify and assess resources; effective work in diverse settings; and evaluation and reflection on individual, personal situations.
Students who complete the leadership certificate will have an enhanced understanding of the personal qualities, interpersonal dynamics and social patterns that influence leadership efforts. In addition, they develop their own personal leadership style and learn to work through civic engagement.
