At NLCP, we believe in people creating “Intentional Lives.”
A person’s life can be “Accidental” or “Intentional.” The Accidental Life just happens – there is no particular guiding principle or plan. In the Accidental Life, accidents happen; the Accidental person loses his/her way. In the Intentional Life, a person maintains clear goals and commits to a way of getting there. The big dreams for the Intentional Life need a specific blueprint.
At NLCP, we expect our graduates to take responsibility for creating their successful plans. We expect our graduates to take with them a belief that says, “I have power. I can make change occur in my life. And, I have a responsibility to serve my community to make change occur to benefit the lives of others.”
NLCP’s Senior Project requires the academic skills necessary for an Intentional Life. Senior Project, our culminating academic project, makes certain that NLCP graduates possess the critical thinking, research, close reading, writing, and presentation tools necessary to where they are going and how to get there.
