College Leadership Florida is based on the belief that knowledge is a key element and prime motivator of leadership. Over a six-day period, 40 college students, studying in a wide variety of majors, will meet and be exposed to the many societal and economic issues facing the state in order to stimulate inquiry, analysis, personal development, and a commitment to Florida.
Program curriculum is designed to address a variety of issues: understanding Florida, public policy, leadership, community service, and technology. The program will feature lectures and symposia by noted government, business and community leaders, consultants and professional educators. These will be supplemented by background readings, on-site visits, small discussion groups, leadership development sessions, and mentoring by Florida's leaders.
