Civic leadership is critical to our communities, governments and not-for-profits as the 21st Century continues to unfold. Leading in today’s ever-changing environment is complex and requires individuals to identify, analyze, collaborate, and solve pressing societal issues through the efforts of broadly engaged public organizations. NIU's Civic Leadership Academy (CLA) recognizes this and continues to adapt its programming to cross the boundaries of public, private and nonprofit sectors. CLA workshops allow for in-person interactions with fellow participants and instructors using experiential learning techniques. The training program offers a series of workshops across an array of topics central to being an effective leader in the 21st Century.

Participants who successfully complete the two core workshops ("Leadership Lessons: Trying Times Demand Sound Leadership" and "New Civics and the Impact of Globalization"), plus the equivalent of two full-day workshops, are eligible to earn a Certificate of Achievement. To earn the Specialized Certificate of Achievement requires the successful completion of the Certificate of Achievement, plus the equilavent of two full-day workshops within a specialization track in Community/Economic Development, Human Resources, Governmental and Organizational Governance & Performance, or Nonprofits. Discounts are provided for multiple participants from one agency, and to members of partner nonprofit agencies  for specific workshops held at partner locations within the Nonprofit Specialization Track.

Training in Your Workplace

In today’s rapidly changing economic climate, new models of learning and instruction delivery are needed for communities to maximize their fiscal resources. Municipalities, counties, nonprofit organizations, schools, and special districts can do this by pooling their training dollars towards collaborative learning opportunities. Customized training provides for pricing that is modified to fit your needs and budget. Take advantage of guaranteed minimum attendance in order to ensure opportunities for cross-sector inter-governmental participation.
