DCLF Curriculum Topics

The 2014 program will revolve around a monthly (and occasionally twice monthly) curriculum similar to years past.  The highlight of DCLF is what many call the life-changing adventure of Outward Bound. The program will run from February through November, 2014.  It will be driven by the nationally recognized academic professionals of the University of Colorado Denver’s School of Public Affairs making it one of the most highly regarded leadership development programs available in the state of Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West.
