The development and writing of the Critical Thinking in Leadership Curriculum was supported by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board Leadership Grant 81102. The curriculum writers reviewed the Texas Rural Leadership Program curriculum, kept the salient parts and added curriculum components that focused on critical thinking based on data driven decision making principles. Successful completers will receive continuing education units in LEAD 1000 Workforce Development with Critical Thinking, LEAD 2000 Corporate and Community Development with Critical Thinking, and LEAD 2050 Leadership Development with Critical Thinking if the program is associated with an accredited community college in the state of Texas.
