UI to debut leadership certificate for undergrads

IOWA CITY (AP) -- Starting this fall the University of Iowa will begin offering a Certificate in Leadership Studies to all of its undergraduate students.

Kelley Ashby is director of the Career Leadership Academy at the school's career center, which will administer the certificate program. Ashby says the certificate can make Iowa graduates stand out when they're looking for jobs.

The certificate requires 21 hours of coursework and students will have to complete a hands-on project. Ashby says students studying in any discipline at the university can earn the certificate.

The aim is to teach students skills like management, coordination, communication and acting with integrity.
