Certificate Programs

Nonprofit Leadership Certificate
The Nonprofit Leadership Certficate program, which is based on 17 core competencies, is open to all students from any major and complements the Pryor Leadership Studies Program, the Tucker Leadership Lab, and the curricular and co-curricular activities already in place at William Jewell College. The Nonprofit Leadership Certficate benefits students by giving them targeted studies/experiences in the core competencies necessary for effective leadership in nonprofit organizations. Nonprofit Leadership Association students also have numerous opportunities to interact with nonprofit leaders through their participation in workshops, conferences and internships with a highlight being the annual AH Management Institute.  

Pryor Leadership Studies Program 
In order for William Jewell College to be the “Leadership College,” it must maintain an educational context that teaches personal, vocational and civic leadership through critical reflection, mentoring and experience.Toward that end, a leadership certificate pilot program was established in the fall of 1993 by the College in conjunction with the Pryor Foundation, headed by Fred and Shirley Pryor. In January 1998, the Leadership Studies Program was permanently endowed by the Pryors.

Students are chosen each spring semester through a competitive application/interview process. In order to graduate as Pryor Leadership Fellows and receive the corresponding leadership certificate, students must complete all required activities. A leadership portfolio is maintained on each Pryor Fellow. In order to receive the Pryor Leadership Certificate, the portfolio must be reviewed and approved by an evaluation committee comprised of the leadership studies director, faculty members and representatives designated by the Pryor Foundation. At the request of the Pryor Foundation, this review process may also include exit interviews with students.
