LCP | Overview
In the Georgia College Leadership Certificate Program (LCP), students learn about the principles and practices of effective leadership through the study of leadership topics and models, the acquisition of hands-on leadership experience, and the process of intentional personal reflection.
The leadership training, education, and development of these students supports their performance in current leadership positions, benefits the organizations and programs with which they work, and prepares them for future leadership endeavors.
LCP members improve their understanding of important leadership concepts, develop valuable leadership skills, and gain direct leadership experience by participating in courses, workshops, discussions, retreats, service projects, presentations, and conferences.
Members who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate at a closing ceremony held at an end-of-the-year GC Leadership Programs recognition ceremony and a medallion to be worn at graduation.
