What is Leadership Corpus Christi?
It’s a 10-month community engagement program designed to develop an awareness of the Corpus Christi community, create a network of informed leaders, and encourage greater involvement in the community.  The program begins with a mandatory two-night retreat in mid-September and culminates with a graduation program in May.

What will I learn?
Each month’s topic is presented through the insights of prominent individuals from the public and private sectors, in-depth dialogue of current issues pertinent to the session topic, case studies, site visits, and interactive and “hands-on” experience. Participants also work in teams or as a group on projects of their own design to provide tangible solutions to various contemporary community challenges. The community actually becomes the classroom.

What is the Commitment?
Two-night mandatory opening retreat – occurs early September
One weekday session per month (August – May) – second Thursday of each month, usually 12:30-8:30pm
Community experiences, homework/projects – required independent of monthly class sessions.

How do I apply and how much is it?
Tuition for the Leadership Corpus Christi program is $1,250.00 per participant. Tuition covers  the retreat, overnight session to Austin for State-Federal session, monthly sessions, meals, and materials. A limited number of half scholarships are available to those not able to pay the full tuition. Scholarships are awarded based on need and class composition. Tuition is due in full by September 1 unless prior arrangements have been made for installment payments.
