TCC Leadership Institute



The TCC Chesapeake Leadership Institute is established to meet the needs of TCC students.  We offer a variety of workshops and conferences during the Fall and Spring semesters.  Workshops are open to all students and offered twice a month.

All participants who complete at least 3 programs/workshops will receive a certificate and will be honored at the annual Leadership Banquet.  Online workshops are presented by the National Center for Student Leadership (NCSL).  Student leader certifications are available after successful completion of the Certified Student Leader: Group Fundamentals course.  A select number of students participating will be awarded funding to complete the course for certification.

The Leadership Institute's mission is to enhance the collegiate experience by providing opportunities for self discovery.  Our purpose is to encourage student achievement while aiding in the development of strengthened, purpose-driven student leaders capable of demonstrating these attributes in and outside of the classroom environment.
