Leadership Development

Leadership experiences help students discover personal strength and gain essential competencies employers are looking for. These experiences foster skills and qualities such as mentorship, inclusive interaction with diverse groups of people, integrity, and relationship-building that support them on a journey to becoming an effective leader.




Examples of leadership development in academic courses may include having students:

  • Work in a team
  • Lead a class project
  • Present at a conference
  • Be a committee representative
