Lions University: Resources for Leadership Excellence

A regal winged Lion on top of a column is the logo for Lions University.As a Lions Club leader, you understand that building strong communities through volunteer service is our objective.  The Lions University program is about making sure that you have the skills and resources to meet this objective.

Through three degree programs, Lions Leaders will enhance their knowledge and skills to better serve their community.

To complete a degree, Lions must complete 10 required courses and at least 5 elective classes.   To complete a course, the Lion takes part in an hour long training session.  These sessions are offered online on this website, through periodic webinars that are posted on this website, and through live sessions led in Districts and Multiple Districts.

Once the training session is completed, the Lion takes a simple online test to confirm their learning.  Upon completion, the Lion is awarded a certificate of course completion.  Lions are welcome to complete the courses that interest them in any of the degree programs in any order they wish.  Credit is given toward only the degree that the class is under.

  • Bachelor of Lions Degree:  This program allows Lions to develop the skills necessary to lead a vital Lions Club.  Courses are directed to the skills needed to be great club leader.  Click here to learn more about this program.

  • Doctorate of Lions Degree:  This program focuses on skills needed to be a training facilitator for adult volunteers.  In affect, Lions with a Doctorate Degree are prepared to be great trainers of other Lions.  Click here to learn more about this program.

Webmaster’s Note: As Lions we are busy and cannot always participate in activities that will improve ourselves, our club(s) and our service to communities. Lions University offers a unique online opportunity to learn at our own pace as time is available. In addition, individual courses can provide timely resources in response to specific challenges. Earning a degree is great, but expanding skills and improving results starts with a single course.

For a listing of available courses see the February 24, 2015, Lion’s University post.
