Grounded in the Social Change Model of Leadership and CSUSM’s Integrated Co-Curricular Model, the Tukwut Leadership Circle (TLC) is designed to support your leadership, interpersonal,
career, and professional development through weekly workshops and campus & civic engagement.
The TLC program gives 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

Program Learning Outcomes:
