Special Group Communities

Leadership Scholarship

The Leadership Learning Community is designed for first year students at the University of South Alabama who are awarded the USA Leadership Scholarship. Students will engage in a 2-credit hour first year experience course focused on leadership (CAS 100) which will be paired with a 3-credit hour public speaking course (CA 110). You will focus on developing your leadership skills and jump right in to service on the campus and in the local community. This community promises to offer great things!

Students will enroll in a fall CP 101 course (2 credit hours) which will be paired with either DS 082 (3 credit hours) or MTH 100 (3 credit hours) math course. Participation in this learning community is by invitation only.
