As we plan MCLP programming during the pandemic, we have made some strategic changes to the Class of 2021 schedule.  First, we will delay our opening to August 20th to be responsive to health and planning concerns. Second, we are revising our curriculum to exist in a virtual space as needed; we are committed to ensuring the safety of all participants.  Finally, we are reframing our programming to include topics related to leadership in uncertain times, including opportunities to work with local partners towards recovery.

After all, “Leadership must meet the moral challenge of its day.”  Jesse Jackson, July 19, 1988
