LeadershipPlenty® Institute (LPI) Absence Policy
All class absences must be communicated to and excused by the program manager: no unexcused absences will be accepted, and you will be removed from the course if you do not communicate about an absence with the program manager. Additionally, a makeup opportunity must be completed for all LPI Absences by graduation, or the participant will not receive a certificate. Missing more than three sessions/modules will result in non-completion of the course, and participants with more than three absences will not receive a certificate of completion.
Please note: Failure to complete the course means another qualified applicant has been prevented from being part of the Institute this year.
Make-up opportunities will be offered during the term and will typically require a time commitment consistent with a course module (4 hours). In the event of more than three (3) absences, participants may be removed from the program or may be asked to delay participation until a future round of The LeadershipPlenty® Institute (which will require reapplying to the Institute.)
We take this commitment very seriously to ensure that our participants are committed to completing the Institute, to honor the significant tuition underwriting contributed by Waco Foundation and other contributors, and to ensure the participation of the maximum number of qualified applicants each year.
An absence during Module 1 will result in immediate removal from the class, as your spot will be offered to the next person on the wait list without notice.
Reach out to Caelie_Terrazas@Baylor.edu directly to discuss absences and/or to discuss opportunities for making up a LeadershipPlenty absence.
