During the two-year program, a cadre meets each summer and then in a weekend format during the school year. In addition, there are cluster meetings that will be scheduled each semester as a way for learning opportunities and conversations to extend beyond the classroom. Students must commit to be in attendance at all classes. Year 1 cadres meet for a 6 credit hour class for three weeks in June, weekend seminars in the fall and spring. Year 2 cadres have a 3 credit hour internship in May/June and a 6 credit hour class meeting for 3 weeks in July, weekend seminars in the fall and spring.
In addition, students complete three “stand-alone” classes during the two-year program.
