The Leadership and Organizational Development program has improved through a program delivery design that meets the needs of adult students with busy lives and who seek to complete their graduate studies in as little as 24 months, focusing on one course at a time.
All courses are scheduled on a rotational basis in eight-week blocks. This design enables busy adults to focus on one course at a time, back to back, which assists students who seek full-time status for financial aid purposes. This eight-week block design also enables students to enter the program in any term (fall, spring or summer), and at either the first eight-week or second eight-week block.
Our standard delivery modes of courses are either face-to-face or the hybrid model. The hybrid model is intended to better accommodate the preferences of students from the Northeast Wisconsin area. It combines the strengths of both face-to-face and online delivery. In the hybrid format, face-to-face sessions typically occur at the beginning, middle and end of a course, with content and direction available online in between these face-to-face sessions.
The Leadership and Organizational Development program has been designed to specifically align with industry standards for organizational leaders and organizational development professionals. This means our program develops requisite skills, knowledge and abilities for organizational leaders and human resource professionals given the alignment with Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) and Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) standards. SHRM and CCL collaborated to identify standards of skill, knowledge and ability that enhance the productivity and effectiveness of organizational leaders and human resource professionals alike.
Health care professionals (specifically, organizational leaders and human resource development professionals within the health care industry) who graduate from our program can claim that they graduated from a program that aligns with National Center Healthcare Leadership (NCHL) standards. Silver Lake College of the Holy Family’s Leadership and Organizational Development program serves health care professionals and is among the very first graduate programs to align with the NCHL standards.
The courses in the Leadership and Organizational Development program are taught by instructors who are proven professionals in their field and committed to excellence in all facets of learning and serving our adult student population. The practical experience of our faculty and their working knowledge of the learning process engages students in sharing their experiences and is just one of the many strengths of our program. Our faculty are proven professionals and are absolutely committed to seeing our students succeed, from class to class, and ultimately in their careers and personal lives. Our faculty model and apply the values of a Franciscan institution of higher education, and they instill these same values in our students.
Silver Lake College of the Holy Family has provided me with a comfortable learning environment, great professors and a college that puts my needs for success as a No. 1 goal. Receiving my degrees from Silver Lake College of the Holy Family also has provided me with professional opportunities and goals that I could not have obtained without my educational experience at this wonderful learning institution.
