Is the program fully virtual? We are pleased to return to a hybrid model program with face-to-face and virtual sessions for Cohort 7. Our team is constantly evaluating public health policies and guidance from the CDC, the New England region, and our internal organizations. In the event we are no longer able to conduct face-to-face meetings due to safety concerns, at any point before or during the program, we will conduct all meetings in a virtual format and tuition costs will be reevaluated accordingly.

Technology FAQs:

What platform do you use for virtual sessions? – The LDP team uses the Zoom platform for all virtual sessions.

Why do I need a Gmail email? – The LDP uses Google Suite – including Google Classroom – as the main resource/information center.  To join the Google Classroom account for each cohort, and to participate most effectively, a Gmail account is required.

Tuition FAQs:

If we return to a fully virtual format will my program costs change? Yes, in the event we are no longer able to conduct face-to-face meetings due to safety concerns, at any point before or during the program, we will conduct all meetings in a virtual format and tuition costs will be reevaluated accordingly. 

Why is there a range in cost for the program? Overall program costs are based on two main factors: tuition and lodging for face-to-face retreats. If you are within commuting distance for the retreats and do not need lodging for those sessions, your overall program cost is adjusted accordingly.
