North Star Executive Leadership
4 Weeks Online, 4 Weeks Residency & Capstone

Ribbon Color ~ RED
Award ~ MAGNUS GLADIO

The Center for Police Leadership and Ethics’ flagship initiative is the North Star Executive Leadership Program. North Star is a residential experience held at hotel/conference centers and university settings around the United States preceded by several modules of online learning at your own pace. The innovative blended learning format allows students to begin immersing themselves in leadership concepts prior to the residency, which affords more time for experiential learning and relationship building during the residency.

The courses focus on leadership and ethics, contemporary issues/challenges in the policing community, wellness/mindfulness/fitness, and a specialization course of the student’s choosing (e.g. ethical decision-making, constitutional law). Our faculty is comprised of seasoned educators with graduate or doctoral degrees and substantial experience in the policing field. While American agencies fill the majority of events, members of the international law enforcement community represent a critical component of the North Star program. 

The course graduates will receive a North Star Certificate of Completion form the Center for Police Leadership and Ethics International,  National Command & Staff College’s Ribbon and MAGNUS Gladio Medal.  With this, the graduates become a member of an elite MAGNUS Gladio Network for enhance networking and future re-training and development.
