Emerging Leaders Certificate Program

The Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC) Student Emerging Leader Certificate Program is designed to provide students the opportunity to develop leadership tactics that will build on current skills and foster new abilities employers are seeking. Students are nominated by the faculty and staff of Northeast Iowa Community College.  The program aims to help seasoned student leaders refine their leadership skills and to assist new and emerging leaders in developing the knowledge and skills they need to make a difference at Northeast Iowa Community College and beyond.

Students who complete the program will receive a non-credit certificate indicating completion of the program which will enhance their professional resume.

The program kicks-off with a retreat followed by six, one hour leadership seminars during the College common hour. There is no outside work required only active participation.

There is no cost for nominated students.
