Leadership and Personal Enrichment Seminars (Online Only)

Program Overview and List of Topics

Many adult learners want to further their skills and understanding of Dr. Townsend’s teaching in the area of leadership or personal development but are not interested in earning academic credit. You now have a choice to learn at a your own pace. You will work independently and complete the assignments in whatever time framework you desire. There will not be an instructor facilitating this process. Once you turn in all your assignments, you will receive a certificate of completion from the Townsend Institute at Huntington University.These enrichment opportunities are similar to what participants receive in an all-day workshop.
