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.

100% of those who have taken the Character Education Certificate course strongly agree that it demonstrates the importance of the subject matter and more than 70%  would highly recommend the course to peers.

"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."
