Student participants earning the LC Leadership Credential must demonstrate the characteristics and skills of a skilled and trustworthy leader.

The criteria for earning the LC State Leadership Credential focuses on adding value to student’s experiential learning opportunities by allowing students the ability to gain additional skills in four specific areas of leadership:

  1. Leading Self
  2. Leading Others
  3. Managing Processes
  4. Leading for Legacy

The criteria for earning this credential was developed to echo the mission of LC State where we prepare students to become successful leaders, engaged citizens and lifelong learners.

Students fully earning the LC Leadership Credential will earn a digital badge from SkillStack Idaho.
