Tukwut Leadership Circle

Grounded in CSUSM’s Integrated Co-Curricular Model, The Tukwut Leadership Circle is a program designed to support your leadership, interpersonal, career, and professional development through weekly workships and campus & community engagement.

The goal of the TLC program is to give students the opportunity to learn and explore leadership concepts through real life experiences both on and off campus so that they can better understand themselves as unique individuals. The program takes approximately 30 hours to complete and must be completed within one year but many students complete the program in one semester!

Consider the shape--- there is no clear beginning or end, and you can go around as many times as you would like. The size can change, and the focus can be inward or outward. This is similar to your leadership path, where you continue to gather skills and momentum.
