The Rising Star Institute is a foundational leadership development program designed to educate participants on the many Lone Star College cultural and operational strategies. Participants are empowered with specific tools and decision-making strategies to reach new heights as a high-performing employee at Lone Star College.

The Leadership Edge

The Leadership Edge is a leadership development program designed for Lone Star College adjunct and part-time employees to lead from where they are. Fellows will learn about the importance of feedback, aligning culture to their role, how to advance equity, how to recognize and appreciate the strengths of others, managing workload, defining their leadership style, and how to be a change leader.

Leadership Education Advancement Program

The Lone Star College Leadership Education Advancement Program (LSC-LEAP) is a year-long leadership and career development program for non-exempt staff members across Lone Star College. Participants engage in a curriculum that focuses on personal leadership development while also providing a focus on career advancement. Ultimately, the goal of LSC-LEAP is to provide non-exempt staff with engaging learning opportunities that lead to growth and career advancement at Lone Star College. LSC-LEAP empowers participants to lead from their current position.

Lone Star Leadership Academy

As Lone Star College's premier Leadership Development program, The Academy is committed to growing, supporting and celebrating Lone Star College's current and emerging leaders by encouraging Fellows to lead from where they are. The Academy prepares individuals for future service to Lone Star College, our students, and our communities through a curriculum that inspires a personal leadership transformation. The program focuses on philosophical and theoretical aspects of leadership, collaboration, problem solving, strategic thinking, and personal awareness. The American Association of Community College's (AACC) Core Competencies for Community College Leaders are foundational to the program's curriculum.

Leadership Development Alumni Association

After successfully graduating from a Leadership Development program, graduates automatically become members of the Leadership Development Alumni Association. Each year, alumni have opportunities to improve their leadership skills through professional development, networking, and community outreach. Alumni members are also encouraged to be active advocates in recruiting applicants for the next Leadership Development cohorts and assisting with the promotion of the Lone Star College Leadership Brand.
