Henry Ford College (HFC) now offers a new associate’s degree program in Community Leadership. The first class in this program begins on Thursday, Sept. 18, and runs for 12 weeks.
This class is called Intro to Community Leadership and is cross-listed as POLS/SOC 100. Students can earn either a Political Science or Sociology credit. Currently, only one section of POLS/SOC 100 is available and seats will fill quickly. If you wish to enroll and the course is full, you can put your name on the waitlist. HFC may open additional courses if the demand is great.
As a part of the Community Leadership Program, you will join a national network of students, community colleges and community organizations working toward the same goal: preparing the next generation of community leaders for careers dedicated to improving the quality of life in rapidly changing communities. Additionally, the course will prepare you for a leadership career in non-profits, hospitals and local government.
Civil society needs leadership to solve everyday problems. These problems cannot be solved by high-powered CEOs or elected officials only. Community leadership is leading citizens to problem solve in their own community, their own backyard. As renowned cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead once said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
When selecting this program on the HFC online application, please select Community Leadership. The program code is COMMLEADERSHIP.AA. To get started in the Community Leadership Program, visit https://www.hfcc.edu/programs/community-leadership, or call 313.845.6397
