PLAN brings the Simmons principles and values into the present day.
Get ready to think big
Simmons PLAN(Purpose Leadership ActioN) prepares each student to become their own kind of leader. You'll customize a program to meet your goals.
Through the Boston Course, the Leadership Course and Learning Communities, our students will engage with the city of Boston, develop their own understanding of leadership, engage in integrative learning across academic disciplines, and design key components of their course of study.
You’ll work closely with your advisor to choose courses that fit the University requirements — but also inspire and challenge you.Essential Capabilities
