Character Initiatives at North Central College

North Central College is committed to inspiring well equipped, principled, responsible leaders. That's why we partnered with the Kern Family Foundation, who provided a 4.5 year, $3.2 million grant- the College's largest private grant ever- to launch character initiatives designed to have a lasting impact.

Through this process, North Central College will be a place where educators, aspiring leaders, administrators, and community members develop social, emotional, and ethical competencies to influence transformation in themselves and others.

"What I appreciated most was how the course began with intentional reflections around our own definition of character and how we act out our character in our professional lives. I was also struck by the conversation around community cultural wealth. I found this to be extremely relevant to my teaching environment and have already shared it with colleagues."
