Posted: 1:26PM May 29th, 2012 | Comments
The Edgewood College Sustainability Leadership Graduate Program still has space in its third (2012-13) cohort that begins July 28. Edgewood College is offering a $1,250 Sustainable Business Discount to employees of Sustain Dane's Mpower ChaMpion Business Program and Sustainable Business Network members.
Participants need to enroll by July 20, 2012 to receive the discount.
The Sustainability Graduate Leadership Program is designed for working professionals interested in gaining skills and resources to address real-world issues related to their personal and professional goals, and it serves as a collaborative innovation center for those who recognize the urgent call to create abundant, healthy, and prosperous communities. Students gain practical knowledge in transformative ethical leadership, social justice, ecological design, and community participation, and apply them toward individual or small group community projects. Participants join a network of sustainability leaders that include program colleagues and mentors, program advisors, and community partners in both the public and private sectors.
This one-year, 15-credit certificate program begins with an 8-day residential immersion course (July 28-Aug 4) and continues throughout the Fall and Spring semesters, approximately every other Saturday. Edgewood College offers a concentration in the MBA or MA in Education programs and a stand-alone certificate. The all-inclusive program cost of $12,400 ($11,150 with a Sustainable Business Discount) covers tuition, all required books and materials, food and lodging for the initial residential experience, lunch and snacks on Saturday class days, and field trips.
Edgewood College is also recruiting for the Community Fellowship in Sustainability Leadership. Community Fellows bring specific interests, expertise, and other resources to the Sustainability Leadership Program, and in turn benefit by joining a diverse community of learners, scholars, and those promoting change for sustainability. Sponsoring organizations benefit from the professional development and community engagement of their participating Fellows, and from the recognition as a supporter of sustainability in the larger community.
