VITERBO UNIVERSITY TO OFFER CERTIFICATE FOR ETHICAL LEADERSHIP IN ORGANIZATIONS BEGINNING THIS SUMMER
LA CROSSE, Wis. – Utilizing a “train the trainer” approach, this summer Viterbo University will introduce a 12-credit certificate for Ethical Leadership in Organizations.
The program is targeted for people who want to learn how to lead effective, ethical change within their organizations.
The first course, Interpersonal and Organizational Excellence, will be offered on campus Monday, Aug. 3–Friday, Aug. 7. Participants will also select electives generated from four areas of interest: business, servant leadership, education, or nursing.
Because the certificate is targeted for busy adults, course planners worked on keeping the work load manageable and spread out over a year.
“This program is ideal for individuals who want to learn about ethical leadership in detail,” said Rick Kyte, director of the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership. “We’ve taken many of the popular programs that have been delivered off campus and put them into one certificate program. It really has the potential to change both the leader and the organizational culture while improving morale, increasing trust, and building more useful performance measures.”
Participants will utilize a number of self-assessment tools such as the Myers-Briggs during the course. The part-time program can be completed in one year by taking one summer course the first year, another the following year, and a couple of evening courses in between.
The cost of the program is $275 per credit. Complete details are available at www.viterbo.edu/ethics.aspx?id=48310 or by contacting the School of Adult Learning at 1-888-VITERBO or email@example.com.
