Cohort Model

Participants in the KLP will go through the program sequentially together. By working within a cohort, you will be able to meet new people, learn together, and lead towards a common goal. The first level is named SCARLET, the second is named GREY, and the third is named KNIGHT. 

SCARLET Level

The SCARLET level will seek to answer the question "who am I as a leader?" The SCARLET level will be offered in the spring semester. Participants will meet 6 times over the course of the spring semester to dive into a deep exploration of self. If selected, you will be expected to attend all 6 meetings. 

SCARLET Selection Process 

Participation in the KLP is selective. However, you do not need to have leadership experience to be selected to the program. What you need is a desire to improve and become a stronger leader. 

To apply, complete the form available on KnightLife (follow the prompts to create your account using your Arcadia email address). Applications are due on Wednesday December 20. Please note that you must submit a resume and the names and contact information for two references (including 1 Arcadia faculty/staff reference) when you complete the application.

GREY Level 

The GREY level will build on your self-awareness and look at how you create and lead teams. The GREY level will be offered during the fall semester. To participate in the GREY level, you must have successfully completed the SCARLET level and be prepared to attend the 6 required meetings throughout the fall semester. 

KNIGHT Level

The KNIGHT level will elevate your leadership to positively impact change in the community. The KNIGHT level will be offered during the spring semester. To participate in the KNIGHT level, you must have successfully completed both the SCARLET and GREY levels. The KNIGHT level will be a combination of individual experiences and group work.
