Leadership Online for Today

Leadership Online for TodayThis innovative online program was developed by MU Extension with the intent to prepare emerging leaders to affect positive community change. It allows participants to develop leadership skills at their own convenience, and provides a unique experience that will help prepare participants for other leadership opportunities within the community.

Developed for today’s up-and-coming leaders, this 11-week program is unique because of its approach to learning and use of media-centric technology that allows for interaction online. The program will allow participants to:

  • Improve communication skills;
  • Build relationships and networks; and
  • Develop a collaborative project to benefit a community or organization.
