The Leading and Creating Change graduate certificate prepares you to create positive change and make an impact in your profession and communities. You will learn how to develop your ability to work effectively in leading teams, understand and support the perspectives of others, manage conflict, engage in difficult conversations, think strategically as you create new initiatives, and coach, mentor, and develop those around you. By learning how to create vision, momentum, and change, you will be better positioned to lead, motivate, and empower others.

The skills gained are immediately applicable and will directly translate into your personal and professional lives. In a time where our world seeks to solve global challenges such as climate change, institutional racism, and food insecurity, leadership is needed now more than ever.

We look forward to partnering with you to further develop your leadership, accelerate your career, and better serve your communities as you learn to lead and create change!
