Every Scout deserves a trained leader. The University of Scouting, one of the premier training events in the council, is one of the easiest ways for you to achieve this goal. This single-day training event, offered by the Crossroads of America Council, is designed to supplement any Scouter's training. Any Scout leader may attend. This year we have combined what was once Pow-Wow, into our courses to have 21 new Cub Scout related courses. Courses specific to Cub Scouting have "C" added their Course ID. Courses specific to Boy Scouting have "B" added to their course ID. Courses specific to Venturing have "V" added to their Course ID. Courses of interest to any Scouter have "G" added to their Course ID. As an example, PC101, All Cub Leader Specifics, is a Cub course.
The University of Scouting is based on the BSA nationally recognized Four-Function Plan - which include:
  • Program: training, camping/outdoor, advancement, and activities/civic service
  • Unit Service: commissioner service
  • Finance: including marketing
  • Membership and Relationships
Degrees and courses are available in three colleges related to each of the Four Functions (Although commissioners are trained elsewhere, commissioner-related courses are available to leaders in units). Additional courses are available in General Studies to supplement your educational experience. Each college offers a Bachelor and Masters Degree program. There is also a Doctoral Degree program available for those who have earned a Masters degree.
