The College of the Canyons Leadership Education in Action Program was presented with the North American Council for Staff, Program and Organizational Development Innovation Award at the organization's annual conference Oct. 24 in Reno, Nev.

The NCSPOD was formed in 1977 through the vision of community college faculty, staff and program development practitioners across the country who shared a mutual need for developing industry knowledge and skills, while sharing information and networking within the field.

LEAP was launched at College of the Canyons in spring 2008 to help foster the development of visionary, pace-setting administrative leaders.

Specifically, LEAP provides individuals who want to be leaders, at College of the Canyons or elsewhere, an opportunity to identify and develop the knowledge and skill sets required to lead and shape the Santa Clarita Community College District, and indeed the California Community College System.

Throughout the spring semester, the 45 College of the Canyons faculty, staff and administration members who participated in the program attended a series of workshop sessions and presentations by community college leaders from around the state, visited other community college campuses, and reviewed institutional case studies - before teaming up to develop and complete real-life projects that addressed a current institutional challenge at College of the Canyons.
