Loveland U

Loveland U

In Loveland U Citizens' Leadership Academy, you will encounter an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the Loveland community. Participants will obtain first-hand knowledge and provide valuable input and feedback into the issues, plans, and activities in the community.

Each session will analyze areas of community concern, provide opportunities for open dialogue among participants with diverse perspectives, examine leadership styles, and ultimately establish a new network of community trustees committed to the greater good.

Loveland U is an adult learning environment with practical exercises that help relate a topic to real world experiences by identifying an issue, educating on how one might address it, and then allowing teams of participants to apply their knowledge, with minimal lecture time.
