This unique program is conducted by Focus on the Family at its Colorado Springs campus. Focus Leadership Institute is a one-semester undergraduate study program designed to help equip tomorrow’s leaders for family, church, and society. Outstanding student leaders from colleges and universities around the nation compete for limited positions in the fall, spring, and summer semesters.
Students in the 15-week fall and spring semesters are involved in professional practicums within Focus on the Family and the broader Colorado Springs community. The summer semester is an 8-week program that covers the same material as fall and spring, but in a condensed format without a practicum. Students from all academic majors who have completed 45 semester hours are encouraged to apply for this program. Students in the fall and spring semesters earn 15-16 hours of credit. Summer students earn 8 hours of credit.
Focus Leadership Institute provides students the opportunity to register with CCU the week of orientation. A $100 fee is required for enrollment at CCU. To obtain further information on this opportunity, please contact CCU’s Life Directions Center.
