University of Scouting
October 19, 2024
Northfield, VT 05663
The University of Scouting is unlike any other BSA Adult Training. Participants will get to know a few of Green Mountain Council's experienced Scouters, who will be presenting various topics designed to provide detailed information on how Scouting works and best practices for delivering the Scouting program, as well as courses aimed at your personal development as a leader and mentor.
Similar to a real university, participants earn a degree based on the number of courses taken. The degrees are also a way for Scouters to collect one more patch! The center circle is earned by attending University and completing any number of classes. Rockers are earned as follows. Courses need not all be completed in the same semester.
- Bachelor - Complete any 6 University classes
- Master's - Must have a Bachelor degree and complete 6 additional courses
- Post Grad - Must have a Master's degree and complete 6 additional courses
- PhD - Must have a Master's degree, complete 4 doctoral-level courses and 3 additional courses, and fulfill the thesis requirement (thesis becomes the property of Green Mountain Council). NOTE: Doctoral-level courses are not being offered this semester.
