Excellence acknowledges that you’ve met the challenge of providing leadership within the University and oftentimes, beyond. This prestigious program is designed to take your leadership to the next level. The mission of this program is to take your leadership to the next level which will allow you to transfer skills and knowledge so that you can exhibit the exemplary qualities of a leader for others to emulate.
Many have tried to define leadership. Certainly, there are a myriad of books addressing the subject and numerous trains of thought surrounding what a leader should be. Is leadership learned? Is leadership inherent in an individual? Is it a combination of both? What are the qualities of an excellent leader? Which summarily is followed by “Do I exhibit these qualities? And if not, how do I hone them?” All of these questions, and much more, are explored as you continue to expand your knowledge, skills and abilities.
Leadership is not for the faint of heart. Good luck in your journey.
