Offered as an Academic Micro-Credential
A badge in Values-Based Leadership is an experiential learning opportunity that gives curious learners an opportunity to analyze community needs and prototype local solutions in collaboration with established local businesses as well as social and commercial entrepreneurs. In addition to values-based leadership training from industry professionals, students will gain internship experience, and take a course that challenges them to consider how local entrepreneurship takes place in wider systems of influence. Students will come away from the program with extended social/professional networks as well as a portfolio resumé for use in their own entrepreneurial endeavors and future job searches.
The badge requires participation in a 10-week humane leadership training course workshop (4 credits), an internship with the Local Innovation Lab (4 credits), and one elective course selected from the list of “systems of influence” courses (4 credits). All three components may be taken simultaneously or sequentially.
