"With LDPE, I appreciated the time to learn, to process, to explore. The program offers a variety of experiences over 9 months, each one building on the other.  The greatest value for me was having the opportunity and time to actively participate in and reflect on each activity and the experience as a whole.  I am forever grateful for the experience. – Tonya Johnson, 2019 Leadership Development Program, Executive-Level Graduate

Open Campus Leadership Development Programs 

LDPE (Leadership Development Program, Executive-Level)

The Leadership Development Program, Executive-level, is our longest-standing leadership program. LDPE is designed for OSU faculty on a leadership track, and aims to provide in-depth facilitated self-reflection, Executive Mentorships, strengths development, workshops, projects, and more over a nine-month period.

The Extension Community Leadership Program: Pilot

Open Campus is in the process of building a customizable and hybrid (in-person & virtual) leadership development program for communities who want to grow their own leaders. Attendees will be able to select their own path in the program, while also being part of a cohort. This six-month customizable program offers community members facilitated self-reflection, training, resources, workshops, and more! We will also be piloting a parallel track in Spanish.

Leadership Development for Women

In partnership with CARDV and the Corvallis Multicultural Literacy Center, OSU is piloting a leadership development program specifically tailored to women of CARDV and the CMLC!

Choose Your Own Path to Leadership

Developing strong leaders starts with assessing needs, helping leaders self-reflect, and then providing coaching, mentoring, professional development, skills-building, and support specific to each cohort. From nurturing leaders at OSU to helping communities grow their own leaders locally, all of our leadership programs are customizable and built as we journey together based on cohort experience, skills, and needs.
