Completion of the BLDP will consist of coursework and non-coursework opportunities for active development of leadership skills and habits. Opportunities carry point or credit value in “leadership units.” In order to complete the program, students must earn a total of 14 leadership units while enrolled in a Rutgers-Camden academic program.

  • Units must include both coursework-based opportunities and non-coursework opportunities, with non-coursework comprising at least four units of the 14 total required units.
  • Students must declare their intent to complete the program before the beginning of their final semester (i.e. one semester before graduation) and meet with the director to confirm and plan the activities leading to completion. Students should fill out a draft of the verification form and bring it to meet with the Director one semester prior to graduation.
