Community College Leadership programs

Community College Leadership

SDSU's Community College Leadership programs (CCLEAD) develops leaders who are equity-oriented, use inquiry to understand the inherent complexities of educational systems and maintain institutional responsibility for critical issues facing Americas community colleges.

Leadership Training

We train reflective leaders and change agents who are capable of responding to the increasingly complex needs of educational organizations that serve diverse student populations.

CCLEAD has the overarching goal of preparing:

  • Self-aware, transformational leaders
  • Inquiry driven, transformative leaders
  • Highly adept resource stewards
