Pacific Institute for Leadership Development


Phi Theta Kappa

Phi Theta Kappa Leadership Development Programs department seeks to build and equip the next generation of our nation’s leaders at the grassroots level. To this end, Phi Theta Kappa launched Phi Theta Kappa Leadership Development Studies in 1992 with the support of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
Phi Theta Kappa Leadership Development Studies is designed to be offered to students of two-year institutions as well as local community and business groups. These courses provide emerging and existing leaders the opportunity to explore the concept of successful leadership, and to develop and improve their leadership skills

The PTK curriculum is a diverse, interdisciplinary approach to leadership instruction and is grounded in the humanities. The curriculum combines the study of great leaders portrayed in the humanities by writers, historians, and film makers from ancient times through modern day.

The WK Kellogg Foundation recognized the PTK Leadership Development curriculum as one of only eight (8) exemplary leadership development curriculums in higher education. Their selection was based upon its effectiveness, philosophy, sustainability, and comprehensiveness as well as its targeted training, development, and support for their certified program facilitators.

In the way of a course overview, there are ten (10) modules, each presented in individual three (3) hour sessions.

The course begins by helping each participant identify their particular leadership style and philosophy of leadership. It then guides them through an analytical process to test out their assumptions against timeless leadership principles.

Each module builds upon the previous module and methodically takes the participants through a truly transformational process leaving each participant's thinking challenged and most often changed from the experience.

PTK is an international honor society that was specifically established to both recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year colleges.

Leadership groups will meet at Allan Hancock College Student Center, rooms 106-A and 106-B (map)
