Earn a Leadership Certificate

The Cougar Leadership Program (CLP) is a non credited, eight-week program designed for Global students to develop leadership skills individually and with others, as well as learn about societal impacts.  Featured virtual workshops will be held on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., with the opportunity to catch the recorded sessions due to schedule conflicts.  Students will receive Coug swag and earn a certificate of program completion.

Workshops will center around self-development and personal growth, learning about a wide variety of topics that promote leadership skills and general professional skills. The weekly time commitment is approximately 1.5-2 hours.

Students must be a Global Campus Services & Activities (S&A) fee payer and currently enrolled in WSU Global Campus. Students enrolled in the Electric Power Engineering Online Program (PSM), OMBA, and EMBA programs do not pay GC S&A fees and are not eligible. This is a non-credited certificate program.

What Global Cougs are Saying About the Cougar Leadership Program

Excellent. Learned so much and made great connections!

11/10, would highly recommend! In all seriousness, one of the best programs I’ve been in. The presenters were amazing, and all of us students meshed really well. Every Tuesday night was like a therapy session in a way, you got to learn more about yourself, grow, and have SO much fun with your peers. Every night we met I exited Zoom feeling inspired and refreshed in a way that I haven’t felt in ages. I was able to connect with two of our speakers personally, one of which I owe a coffee date in Pullman, and the other I owe thanks to possibly helping me finally figure out my ideal career path! If I could take this program over and over again, or join others like it, I would in a heartbeat. Absolutely incredible work, Ashley and team!! Thank you SO much for giving us this opportunity!
