Living Leadership Program

A complete University experience includes the opportunity to develop and practice leadership skills.  The Living Leadership Program is a program for incoming freshmen who will live on campus.  Students chosen to participate in the program live and learn together in a residential community.  Freshman year theme is “emerging leadership” and activities include:

  • Community service
  • Attending sponsored events
  • Attending a leadership conference
  • Becoming an active member of an on-campus organization

This program requires an application process, participation in a Kickstart Camp in early August and attendance at a range of leadership development activities in the freshman year.  The program can last as long as two years with the second year focused on mentorship and lifelong leadership.
