Leadership Passport - FAQs
What is a Leadership Passport?
Centennial College's Leadership Passport is a tool to recognize students' individual leadership development while studying at Centennial College. As a Centennial student, you are automatically enrolled in the Passport on eCentennial. Throughout each of the three Passport journeys (Leadership Explorer, Leadership in Action, and Leadership for Change), you will provide evidence of your experiences and learning in the online Leadership Passport course shell. The Leadership Passport team will review your submissions and provide coaching and feedback to assist you on your leadership development journey.
When you complete each journey, you will earn a Statement of Recognition. Successful completion of all 3 journeys and an additional reflection will be recognized by the Distinction in Leadership marked on your transcript and read out at convocation.
What is a Distinction in Leadership?
The Distinction in Leadership is an official Recognition of Achievement for your leadership development work and is awarded to students who successfully complete the requirements of the Leadership Passport. Students who are awarded the Distinction in Leadership will have it noted on their official transcript and have it read out at convocation.
What are the eligibility requirements for the Leadership Passport?
To be eligible to participate in the Leadership Passport, you must be enrolled in a Centennial or Ontario College certificate, diploma or degree program.
How long do I have to complete the Leadership Passport?
We recommend that you review the content of the Leadership Passport course shell early in your studies so that you can plan accordingly for your time and personal commitments. All Passport milestones and journeys will need to be fully completed 2 weeks prior to the end of your academic program (last day of classes in your final semester).
Is the Leadership Passport mandatory?
No, it is not mandatory. This is a co-curricular development opportunity to share your personal leadership story. If you complete all 3 journeys and the additional reflection activity, you will be eligible for the Distinction in Leadership recognized on your academic transcript and read out at convocation.

I started the ‘old’ Leadership Passport (pre-2018)
Please note that the previous Leadership Passport is no longer applicable. Should you have completed it in full, we are able to look at your assignments on a case by case basis. Reach out to the Leadership Specialist to discuss further at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is the Leadership Passport related to the Leadership & Inclusion Certificate offered at the College?
No. The Leadership Passport is a co-curricular learning tool and is unrelated to the Leadership & Inclusion Certificate offered by the School of Advancement at Centennial. The Distinction in Leadership is awarded to students who complete the Leadership Passport.
