Equipping students to change the world

The Christian Leadership Institute (CLI) is a leadership program hosted by the Whitfield Center for Christian Leadership. Open to all CSU students, the CLI teaches the essentials of Christian leadership for success in one’s future vocation. The program also helps students grow in their understanding and practice of leadership. Topics covered include: 

  • Biblical Leadership
  • Vocation and Calling
  • Identifying Your Purpose
  • Leading Yourself
  • Accomplishing Goals
  • Managing Stress
  • Productivity
  • Growing as a Leader
  • Problem Solving
  • Making Decisions
  • Leading Others
  • Serving within Organizations

The program consists of two semesters of interactive leadership luncheons (three in Fall 2019 and three in Spring 2020), followed by an internship related to the student’s future vocation (Fall 2020). Students learn in diverse formats including lecture, discussion and online learning. Any student may apply, but space is limited.
