Legends & Leaders (L2) is an integrated career pathway that combines professional certifications with a degree. The objective is to have students with a focus on active service members, veterans, and military spouses ready to transition into a marketable and competitive career after completion. L2 combines high-demand, industry skills; strong alliances with leading veteran service organizations and private sector companies that help students gain comprehensive field experience while earning their degree.
L2 is designed to provide a combination of methodology and applied learning to help students maximize their learning and performance as they complete their degrees. The University of North America and its employer collaboratives are committed to providing flexible work and school schedules that balance school and work responsibilities, creating a comprehensive workforce development ecosystem.
L2 promotes an industry-focused, career pathway to connect transitioning service members and active-duty military spouses to high-demand careers in Telecommunication; Information Technology; and Cyber Security. The pathway is designed to help bridge the gap between military-connected individuals with high-demand workplace skills.
L2 is designed to build soft and technical skills necessary to succeed in different industries while students make an initial connection with employers who are eager to hire veterans. This program benefits employers by allowing them to network with transitioning military- and military spouse-talent early in the workforce pipeline.
