Leader's Legacy

A leaders legacy.

Student Involvement designed a leadership program with the developmental needs and busy schedules of students in mind. Inspired by the leadership authors, Kouzes and Posner’s book titled, A Leader's Legacy, this program is for students interested in enhancing their leadership skills and competencies. Students that successfully complete the leadership program will:

  • Participate in a program orientation
  • Watch (5) YouTube videos and submit reflections on each in Engage; or any combination of both options
  • Submit goals via Engage
  • Complete a CliftonStrengths for Students assessment
  • Participate in a coaching session

Students that successfully complete the certification program will be recognized at the annual Celebration of Student Leadership and Service held in April and will automatically be honored as a Profile in Leadership. Register for the LEGACY certification program.
