Leadership Philosphy

Our philosophy of leadership is based on the idea that leadership can be learned and that even experienced leaders can continue to learn new concepts. We also support the notion that leadership is a collaborative group process that is inclusive of all participants and therefore not focused on an individual but instead on the relationship between group members. Our belief is that the outcome of the leadership process is oriented toward positive change (Komives, Lucas, McMahon, 2006), whether within the group or the greater community.mission-socialchange

Each of us must find our own definition of leadership as we develop our Leadership Identity.

The philosophy reflects the goals, objectives and aspirations of the program grounded in a sound theoretical/philosophical base which serves as a template for curricular content decisions.
