Participant Overview
All full-time and part-time (50% or greater) continuing employees are eligible to apply to the program.
Enrollment is limited to 10-12 employees. A steering committee will review applicants and recommend admission to the program. The committee’s goal will be to create a diverse class of participants who have a sincere desire to develop personally and professionally, and who possess a genuine interest in increasing their role in SCC’s future. Participants will be released from their regular work duties to attend the program during the designated meeting times.

The program will run all day once a month, September through May. Due to the focused nature of the training involved in this program, attendance is critical. Only employees committed to completing the program in its entirety should apply.

It’s an investment in your future and the college’s future.
