The CLU MPA

We’re Out to Remake Leadership

Claremont Lincoln University is deeply committed to ethical leadership, dynamic organizations, and Socially Conscious Education®. If you believe in social change, if you believe in working for the greater good, if you believe in diversity, equity, and inclusion, you’ll want a CLU MPA. Our students are changemakers who step up, take a stand, and initiate change as thoughtful and dynamic leaders.

A Flexible, Faster Timeline

The CLU MPA is an affordable 13-month program. Professionals can complete the program while working full-time. Each week you’ll apply what you’ve learned to your current employment. Your job responsibilities then inform your academic assignments. The CLU MPA program provides the keys to unlock your potential to build communities, bridge gaps, and solve complex problems.

Your Experience Counts

You could be closer to your degree than you think. At CLU we value practical learning and will work with you to award credit based on demonstrated learning from work experience, professional development training, completion of certificates, and even volunteer work.
