So which studies program should I choose?
Students in CLSP & ELLC take the same classes. LDSP 1000 is required in the fall for both CLSP & ELLC. So what is the difference? Following the links on the right will lead you to more in depth information. The Leadership RAP offers classes that are engaging and challenging for our first year students, with classes of 25 students or less in size taught by dedicated facility with offices here in the hall. Leadership RAP classes satisfy core or elective requirements and all count for the Leadership Studies Minor.
In the Leadership RAP we believe that integral to the study and practice of culturally competent, multicultural, social justice leadership is increasing students' understanding of: power, priviledge, oppression, empowerment and, therefore, the history and function of the social constructs of identity (race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation, age, and ability status) are studied.
Participation in the RAP helps ease the transition for first year students into the large university setting. Our Peer Mentors and staff are available to help students find their way on campus and be a support when needed.
For more information on the two, read our brochure. 2016-2017 Color ELLC and CLSP Broc.pdf
All majors are a good match for either program!
Being in the Leadership RAP is more than just a residential experience. As an academic program at the university, our classes share the same academic rigor of classes across campus. You can find a current list of all Leadership RAP classes and their descriptions in the CU Course Catalog located at http://www.colorado.edu/catalog/2016-17/courses?subject=LDSP Housing in our RAP is dependent upon LDSP classes being taken both semesters. Students across all schools and majors have achieved both the Certificate in the Study and Practice of Leadership and the Leadership Studies Minor.
NOTE: Engineering and Business majors do need to plan carefully to optimally combine their major course credits with Leadership RAP course credits. For example, students may need to adjust the semester that major courses are taken to accommodate Leadership courses. We have developed the following documents for these students to show how they can best combine RAP program courses with the rest of their degree plan.
