Provo Commissioner College

Are you a Scouter who has the word Commissioner in your position?  Unit Commissioner, District Commissioner, Assistant District Commissioner (ADC), Roundtable Commissioner, or other?

The UNPC has a training event coming soon just for you.

Registration is now open!

If you have never been to a Commissioner College before or maybe it’s been a while, let me tell you a little bit more about it.

Commissioner College is one of the best ways for commissioners to get continuing education in their critical role.  It is modeled after a traditional college, with course requirements leading to Bachelors, Masters, and Doctorate “degrees” in Commissioner Science.

In the UNPC we generally run at least 4 colleges each year.  Winter in North Utah County, Spring in the Provo/Orem area, And Fall in South Utah County and Southern Utah.  We would love to find deans willing to organize a college in other parts of the council also. Each college has 25-35 classes to choose from and is open to all interested scouters.

Each College has it’s own Dean.  This dean is a volunteer scouter who will select their own staff and instructors to organize and run their college.  The college dean is advised and supervised by the Council’s Commissioner College Cabinet which is made up of volunteers who have years of experience and are committed to providing quality training for the commissioners within our council, to help get the best program possible to the boys.

Every Boy deserves a well trained leader and every leader deserves a well trained commissioner.  Do your best to be that commissioner!
