College of Commissioner Science


The College of Commissioner Science is an annual training event focused on developing the skills useful to a unit, roundtable, or administrative commissioner. The college provides of up to date information on the newest programs and materials, helps commissioners stay current in the techniques and application of commissioner service, and allows the discussion of issues and needs with other commissioners. Since many of those same skills are important to unit leaders, the college is not only for commissioners but is open to all Scouters.

The college is modeled after the academic system and consists of a Bachelor, Masters and Doctoral degrees. The courses provided have been developed nationally by volunteers with years of experience and are focused on specific issues and needs of the commissioner.

All Commissioners should attend this training to improve their ability to serve their units.
