Why do the courses have a start date and a stop date? Shouldn’t they be self-paced?

A goal of Christian Women’s Leadership Center is for participants to connect with one another and to learn from one another throughout each course. We pace assignments so that participants will have talking points for discussions and forums. For this reason, participants start each course together with a group of cohorts who sign up at the same time. They work through assignments and get to know one another as they discuss course topics each week.
