Course Design and Curriculum


Course Design

PELC consists of three, one-week sessions with approximately one month intervals between the second and third weeks. More accurately, PELC is a three-month program wherein the intervals between the one-week sessions provide time for reading assignments, writing papers, and immediately applying leadership concepts covered in class. Throughout each class day, students play an active part in the learning process through a variety of team projects, problem-solving exercises and leadership assessment instruments. PELC is an in-residence program. Past experience has shown that participants benefit greatly from the group interaction that the in-residence format allows.



The Police Executive Leadership College curriculum is comprehensive and challenging. It was developed by a committee of police executives and academicians and is regularly reviewed to ensure that it is current and meeting the unique and specific needs of law enforcement executives. Change -- both personal and organizational -- is a theme that is emphasized across the curriculum.
