Structure and Credit
In an effort to develop and maintain the cohort of learning partners effectively, the Leadership Focus is offered as a series of workshops that take place over the fall semester. The entire series for the fall semester will be offered as 0.5 LSP credits on a pass/fail basis. Students receive 0.2 LSP credits for attending the Hoffman Challenge Course, and then must attend at least five of the six classroom sessions in order to earn the remaining 0.3 LSP credits.
(Please note: You can register for the Hoffman Challenge Course without signing up for the rest of the series. Classroom sessions, however, are only open to those students participating in the full series.)
