Take Your Place Among Changemakers


Registration for the Public Leadership Credential is open to learners with a bachelor’s degree and at least five years of professional work experience. Ideal learners are highly motivated individuals who are driven by a desire to serve and are inspired to take action to enact change in countless industries and communities.

This unique credential fosters an active and engaging learning environment and will offer learners an in-depth exploration of how to design and evaluate public policy as well as an examination of the role and agency of public leadership. Courses are immersions in Evidence for Decisions, Policy Design and Delivery, and  Leadership and Ethics with one "A" course and one "B" course per subject area. Learners are welcome to take any "A" course they want but must successfully complete an "A" course before taking the corresponding "B" course.

Learners should expect to spend on average 10 to 12 hours per week on online and offline activities and assignments, including a required weekly virtual meeting with an assigned small group of other enrolled students.
