The Leadership Development Program (LDP) is a year-long program designed to provide new and emerging University leaders with the knowledge, skills and tools necessary to lead individuals, departments, projects and teams. The program is ideally suited for managers with five years of leadership experience or less and managers who are new to higher education and/or the university or who have not previously participated in a formal leadership development program. Department Chairs and other non-MPP leaders may also be eligible to participate with Division Head approval. Participant selection is based on application review, division head nominations, and a commitment to attend all of the required workshops outlined on the schedule and complete all required curriculum work including a program end report to the President and the administrative board.

Selected LDP participants will receive opportunities to interact with seasoned campus leaders regarding leadership practices unique to Cal State Fullerton during panel discussions, case studies and presentations; utilize leadership assessment tools to enhance personal understanding of strengths, leadership styles, and preferences; practice new skills in a non-threatening environment and receive feedback and coaching from leadership development professionals to further refine these skills; apply and practice reflective journaling to assist in identifying learning outcomes, application experiences, and future leadership goals; collaborate with campus peers with a broad range of experiences and perspectives; and learn new leadership concepts, tools, skills, and strategies from professional leadership development consultants and gain enhanced knowledge and skills to address leadership challenges more effectively. Participants are also given the opportunity to work in small groups to complete a project assigned by the President's Administrative Board (PAB) and present recommendations to PAB and others at the conclusion of the program, applying new knowledge and skills.
