The Chancellor's Leadership Class (CLC) is a four-year undergraduate leadership development program at UCCS initiated in 1997 by Chancellor Linda Bunnell-Shade. In 2001, staff support created the programs current structure, which enabled CLC to offer students substantial scholarships as a result of an initial grant from El Pomar Foundation and participation in the Colorado Leadership Alliance.

The goal of CLC is to help our Scholars realize their potential and become confident in their approach to life and commitment to community. The program focuses on accelerated development in the following areas:

     1) Leadership studies
     2) Applied leadership experience
     3) Community service
     4) Professional development
     5) Mentoring
