DCLF is a year-long forum that focuses on a new leadership topic each month. Each class is unique, offering a wide range of approaches, workshops, guest speakers, and group exercises. While the topics are different each session, the program is designed to build on the knowledge gained throughout the enitre program year and attendance at each session is critical to maximize the full value of the experience.

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.
