Private College Leadership Certificate


We are currently not admitting new students to this program.

The Private College Leadership Certificate (PCLC) is a series of four eight-week, graduate-level courses designed for professionals who are currently in or are pursuing leadership roles in the private college sector. The certificate is a University of Minnesota program offered through a partnership between the Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development in the College of Education and Human Development and the College of Continuing Education.

The coursework offers specific knowledge and skills related to innovation in organizational development and change, leadership, entrepreneurship, and decision making necessary for leading in private colleges’s unique context.
