Our Guiding Principles
The College for Public Leadership recognizes that public service is a calling. We will prepare individuals to answer this call by emphasizing the values, systems, and beliefs upon which the government of this country rests while forming leaders who serve the common good through their competent, dedicated service to the business of government. Through our actions, we will instill the ideal and practice of public service as servant leadership that is humble, heroic, and effective.
