What is Commissioner College?

Commissioner College is one of the best ways for commissioners to get continuing education in their critical role.  It is modeled after a traditional college, with course requirements leading to Bachelors, Masters, and Doctorate "degrees" in Commissioner Science.    

For all current and future commissioners, including:

  • Unit Commissioners
  • District Commissioners & Assistant District Commissioners
  • Roundtable Commissioners & Staff
  • Other Commissioners and Interested Scouters

The UNPC Online Format & Approach

  • The Utah National Parks Council provides an online opportunity to complete the Bachelors of Commissioner Science.
  • Seven Bachelor's level courses will be offered
  • Each course will last 7 days
