The Leadership Development Project
Since 1995 the Office of Cultural Diversity at St. Cloud State University has invited students in 3rd-12th grades to participate in the SCSU Leadership Development Project. While the program is not limited to students of color, a special effort is made to encourage their participation.
The purpose is for the University to develop and strengthen relationships with students of color, teachers, and administrators of Minnesota high schools. “A college education is a valuable and necessary part of your lives” and setting goals is stressed through workshops conducted with the students.
St. Cloud State University is presented as an excellent choice, but any higher education institution is good, and information about the field of education as an exceptional career choice for a person of color is offered.
