Since 1998, the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities has offered Leadership Development Institutes (LDIs) and Women’s Leadership Development Institutes (WLDIs) every other year with the goal of  equipping and encouraging individuals identified as having potential for future senior-level administrative leadership. In 2011, 2013 and 2015, the CCCU offered the first Multi-Ethnic Leadership Development Institutes.  The LDIs are hosted by Cedar Springs Christian Retreat Center, located 1½ hours north of Seattle near Cedar Springs Gardensthe Canadian border.  Of the 300+ participants to date, approximately 60 have been persons of color from across CCCU campuses.

  • A year-long leadership development program that begins with the June 12-16, 2017 Institute at Cedar Springs
