The Academy is an intensive, cohort style, developmental experience that happens every spring semester. The vision of the Academy is to create a learning community of engaged scholars from diverse disciplinary backgrounds who will apply theories and principles of leadership to their current contexts and beyond.
Participants will attend weekly workshops where they will engage with advanced leadership concepts through discussions with leaders on and off campus. They will identify their own strengths and growth areas as leaders. They will work on teams that will design and execute leadership development projects. Projects in the past have focused on improving or creating Graduate Student Organizations, organizing service projects, researching leadership development opportunities on campus, and working to overcome personal barriers to leadership. This year’s workshops will focus on a deep dive into social change and action oriented leadership.
