2021 Virtual Tri-Council Commissioner College
**Virtual** TRI-COUNCIL COLLEGE OF COMMISSIONER SCIENCE
YUCCA, CONQUISTADOR & GREAT SOUTHWEST COUNCILS
The commissioner is the mainstay for Scouting program administration. It is commissioner service that ensures units are healthy, productive, and connected to District and Council resources. Commissioners also assist in the growth of the program.
The College of Commissioner Science (Commissioner College) program is designed to have a commissioner learn through a series of training classes, followed by work experiences, to help us to ensure a quality program throughout Scouting.
Participants who complete the appropriate classes can earn "degrees" in Commissioner Science , starting with a Bachelor Degree, then a Master Degree, and culminating with a Doctorate of Commissioner Science (as explained in the College Course Catalog). A Doctorate will take a number of years to complete. The commissioner finalizes his or her Doctorate degree with an approved thesis or project for the benefit of the Scouting program.
The Commission College degrees are nationally recognized and the Doctorate degree also earns scouters a special recognition including a knot that can be worn on your uniform. See also the reciprocity guide guide within the College Course Catalog.
This assists both new commissioners as they learn, and seasoned commissioners as they train others.
A well-trained commissioner staff better serves the Scouting movement and programs for youth... "Every Scout Deserves a Trained Leader."
This year the Tri-Council College of Commissioner Science will be offered Virtually due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We are not offering a joint University of Scouting this year. While it is unfortunate that we will not be able to fellowship in person, it provides an opportunity to learn from the comfort of your own home. This training will be accomplished via the Zoom platform. Once you register, you will be sent many more details about how to access the virtual cracker barrel Friday evening March 26th and the courses on March 27th.
Please reach out if you have any questions.
