The Center for NEW DIRECTIONS in Politics and Public Policy offers an undergraduate certificate in Community Leadership to meet the needs of individuals in formal public and nonprofit positions that require development of their leadership competencies and for individuals in informal community leadership positions who want to build their knowledge, skills, and effectiveness. The certificate is open to non-degree seeking students (without an undergraduate degree) as well as undergraduates.

This certificate will help human resources directors in local governments and nonprofit organizations who are seeking additional leadership development for the department heads and other individuals they want to groom for succession to leadership. The certificate can also serve as a re-entry point for individuals who have been away from higher education for some time and who are fearful of returning to college to complete their BA degree program when their study skills may have faded. 

Students who successfully complete the certificate program would be allowed to transfer in the credits received in the certificate program to complete their undergraduate degree at the University of Colorado Denver. Undergraduate student transfer of credits would follow completion of the formal application for admission and follow the established review for acceptance of transfer credits.
