Department of Political Science announces expanded Civic Leadership Program

The Department of Political Science is pleased to announce the launch of our expanded Civic Leadership Program for undergraduates! The CLP is designed to create a stream of highly motivated, exceptionally capable, ethically aware, and broadly-trained individuals who will be prepared to assume leadership positions in civic affairs in both the private and the public domains. We offer two paths to participation: a Concentration in Civic Leadership (for PS majors) and a Minor in Political and Civic Leadership (for students majoring in other fields). For more information on the program and an application, please visit the Forms page in the Undergraduate section of our department's website at pol.illinois.edu/undergraduates/forms/.
