COVID-19 Notice | 2020–2021 Academic Year
As we prepare for the upcoming academic year, the challenges and uncertainty for delivering course content remain in this COVID-19 environment. Edison State Community College intends to provide academic courses through a variety of formats, including hybrid, remote and online. Since unanticipated circumstances at any time could affect the ability to deliver course content in a particular manner, Edison State reserves the right to modify the delivery method for course content for the health and safety of students, faculty and staff. Irrespective of the delivery format Edison State’s competitive tuition and course fee structure shall remain the same for academic courses, consistent with published Edison State tuition and fee schedules. There will be no refund or reduction on tuition or course fees, since Edison State will be providing a full semester of instruction and awarding full academic credit to those who satisfactorily fulfill course requirements.

The mission of the Edison State Community College Center for Leadership Development is to foster the advancement of leadership for individuals to make a difference in their community.

The Edison State Center for Leadership Development sponsors the A–Z Effective Board Award Program. The program is a tool for self-evaluation of your nonprofit board.
This tool is meant to be used throughout the year to ensure that the work of the board and the organization is complete. This instrument defines specific steps and actions that can be taken by your board to meet organizational goals. All stakeholders will play a major role in achieving this award.
Recognizing that outstanding communities are characterized by the quality of life that is supported by individuals committed to service and stewardship in the nonprofit sector—the Center for Leadership Development created this award to recognize nonprofit boards who are doing outstanding work in the region. This checklist document is to be submitted to the Center for Leadership Development by April 10.
Awards are presented to qualifying nonprofit boards at the Mosiac of Community Leadership Conference, held each May, at Edison State Community College.
