AOL Online is designed to help students enhance their leadership skills in a more engaging way than typical classes.

AOL Online is a self-paced, non-credit Blackboard workshop that is offered in the Fall and Spring for fully online students. Students who take classes on either campus and who are interested in the Academy of Leaders should contact the Center for Leadership and Service for more information.

If you register after August 21, please allow 24 hours for the workshop to appear. AOL Online is designed for fully online students only.
