Programs & Courses

The RLI Program

The Rocky Mountain Rotary Leadership Institute conducts over 10 events each year within the various population areas of our Districts and states. The program consists of the separate sessions, Part I, Part II, and Part III. Attendees progress through the three part on separate days and complete the program at their own pace.

Each session is highly interactive and, therefore, contains a minimum of lecturing and provides lots of opportunity for participants to share their experience and ideas. The sessions are led by Rotary leaders who have been trained in the facilitation techniques that maximize the learning experience. A general list of subjects is shown below.

RLI recommends a curriculum and provides all outlines, etc. to all its divisions. The curriculum has been continually revised and upgraded over the years. Because of the growth of RLI, it is expected that major revisions will be recommended every three years in order to give divisions a sufficient opportunity to orient their faculty members and to provide translations where necessary. All important changes of R.I. or the Foundation are provided annually to all divisions. All curriculum materials and all available translations are posted on the RLI materials website available to all members.

The RLI Curriculum Committee meets annually and all divisions are requested to provide suggestions for revision and improvement based on their own experiences. Any division may send representatives to the meetings of the Curriculum Committee.
