INSPIRE Leadership Certificate Program

Inspirational leaders were not just born that way. They benefited from training and opportunities to gain experience.


Corpus Christi College offers the INSPIRE Leadership Certificate Program, a non-credit program available to all students at the College. This program has become very popular with students, who learn concrete leadership skills from well-known community leaders. Get hands-on leadership training, access key resources, and take an active role in a leadership activity of your choosing – all in a supportive environment. Learn how to bring out the best in others so you can have a positive impact, become more empowered, and enrich the lives of those around you.
