COLLEGE LEADERSHIP RHODE ISLAND (CLRI) PROGRAM
Modeled after Leadership Rhode Island’s (LRI) Core Program for career business and community leaders, the College Leadership Rhode Island Program strives to inspire, educate, and engage its students as they begin to make the transition from college to career.
It is an experiential leadership program that gives college leaders further insight into the inner-workings of Rhode Island’s non-profit, for-profit, and government sectors. Topics include community & social issues, civic engagement & the business community, community leadership, and public service. Through this semester-long process, students deepen their understanding of community issues and community-based problem solving while networking with fellow student leaders from around the state.
Since 2004, Leadership Rhode Island has graduated over 150 college students through a targeted collaboration with educational institutions statewide. Class sizes range from 20-30 college students in their sophomore, junior and senior years as well as graduate students and those that have recently graduated (less than a year).
Students interested in the College Program, must complete an online application followed by an interview with a panel of LRI and CLRI alumni. Successful candidates must demonstrate their potential as future servant leaders. There is no application fee and no fee to attend the program once accepted. To apply online, please click here.
