California University of Science And Medicine Leadership Academies

Welcome to the University of Redlands - California University of Science and Medicine Leadership Academies! We are excited to work with you and your team from CUSM. 

Below you will find all of the information you need to know about our upcoming partnership.

Background and Mission

The School of Continuing Studies extends the academic excellence of the University of Redlands to professionals and lifelong learners through the development and delivery of market-driven courses, programs, and services throughout Southern California and beyond.

Program Goals and Objectives

The California University of Science and Medicine – Leadership Academies are designed by the School of Continuing Studies to help participants develop critical and strategic thinking skills. Participants will gain a global understanding of how to lead within their sphere of influence. The academies will focus on the role of individuals in managing performance, building and leading teams, and working effectively within organizations. Participants will be equipped with 21st century leadership skills, competencies identified through scholarly research and interviews with employers in the public and private sectors as critically needed for success. Upon completing the program, participants will earn degree-applicable credit and a certificate of completion awarded by the University of Redlands.

Employing the concept of “learn it today…use it tomorrow,” this program will blend leading management theories with practical real world case studies and relevant work-related projects. Training elements and instructional resources have been selected based on the specific needs of the California University of Science and Medicine, the background and experience of the prospective participants, and the expertise of the instructors who will be teaching the program.

The Academies will be offered over six months. Courses are scheduled in a weekly format, so participants can apply the lessons they learn in the workplace, and then come back together to explore more advanced topics and further reinforce the lessons they have learned.

In total, the Academies offers eight units of degree-applicable credit. Academic credit encourages individual accountability and ensures rigor.

The program is built in three separate academies, each 8 weeks in length, starting in October 2021. While the intention is that participants will complete the entire six-month program, there are openings for participants to enter and exit the program at various points along the way.

The modular nature of the program also allows flexibility to adjust program components based on the needs of the participants. If the program moves too quickly or too slowly, individual modules, assignments or learning objectives may be revised.
