Foundations of Latino Leadership

Through its affiliate faculty, the Cisneros Institute has developed the Foundations of Latino Leadership curriculum to develop and strengthen three complementary sets of skills that are fundamental for effective leaders: a foundation in policy-related “hard skills,” experiential training in communication and professional development “soft skills” and best practices for writing in the discipline.

These graduate-level courses are targeted to Latino young professionals and partner organizations. Classes can be designed for the fall, spring or summer semester. Although each module is customized to meet the needs of participants, the emphasis remains focused on the three core areas.
