In the Finding Grants discussion forum in Week 1 you researched grants that would help you as a leader receive money for your program, staff, faculty, and environment. Throughout the course, you have developed a fiscal management plan, you have researched and identified laws and policies that you will have to adhere to when you become the leader of a program, and you have reflected on your leadership vision, philosophy, mission, and goals.
