M.A. in Organizational Leadership - Civic Engagement
The online M.A. in Organizational Leadership program with a Civic Engagement concentration at CLU produces graduates who are prepared to transform communities, neighborhoods, and regions by facilitating collective, innovative solutions. Graduates demonstrate skillful public sector leadership, advance democratic participation strategies, enable public dialogue and deliberation, and empower communities. This online master's degree emphasizes public administration and public policy under its civic engagement concentration and is much more than furthering special interests and individual desires or acting only when threatened; this is why we define civic leadership as the means to create mutual understanding of the responsibilities of diverse constituencies in democratic self-governance who act in unison to pursue a common, public good.
This program prepares current and future leaders in communities and community-based organizations/institutions; in local government; and in elected or appointed positions to craft more purposeful, innovative, and engaged civic communities and to cultivate communities’ capacity to address the complex challenges that they face.
