Program Details


The Trent Durham Leadership Program is designed to be more accessible to a campus that houses all commuter students, with a higher percentage being mature students and students who have full time jobs.

The program runs under the guide of several learning outcomes that are designed to give students a well-rounded experience in leadership with specific goals that they want to achieve.  There are several workshops that run throughout the year to allow for students to decide which workshops they wish to attend that fit their schedule.  Most of the workshops are an hour in length.
