  • Attend 2 Mandatory, All Cohort, Evening Events per semester.
  • Complete 5 credits of coursework total, and experiences in the categories of campus leadership, mentorship & training, and community service chosen through individualized goal planning.

Leadership Fellows are strongly encouraged, though not required, to consider completing the coursework for the minor in Leadership Development.

The program also sparked an interest to further my studies and pursue a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership.”
