Columbia College has been transforming the lives of women and preparing them for successful futures by working with students one-on-one to provide coaching, professional development, leadership training and internship experiences. The Institute for Leadership and Professional Excellence delivers a comprehensive four-year program integrating high school-to-college and college-to-career advising and instruction.

First year students are paired with a personal advising team consisting of a faculty advisor, career coach and alumnae or community leader to guide their four-year college experience; relevant and intentional career coaching and professional development; and valuable experiential learning opportunities.

Each student builds an academic and career portfolio cataloging her growth and experiences while at Columbia College. Documenting and reflecting on these experiences create a solid foundation for future success.
