Leadership Studies recognizes that students learn from scholarship about the theories and concepts of leadership, but that leadership ability and confidence comes through experience. We learn to be leaders from our personal experiences with leadership and the lived experiences of others who are gracious enough to share their challenges, successes, and personal meaning they made of those experiences. The Leadership Studies Speaker Series offers students age and setting appropriate leaders as exemplars.
