Don't wait for "someday", become a leader now! Develop the skills and practices of leaders and put them to work making a difference while you are still in college. Leadership can be learned and here are just a few of the ways you can learn leadership through practice in the Emerging Leaders Academy at the University of Mary.
- Field Experiences: Expand your horizons with regional and national opportunities to see and practice leadership in action. From site visits with leaders in your field to an opportunity to attend Global Village and work with a team of students from around the world and national industry leaders.
- International Experiences: Make international contacts in your profession, learn new methods and practices and experience the global community that awaits you. Travel to Korea, Guatemala, or India or study at our Rome, Italy campus. The world awaits - start your global leadership journey today!
- Leadership Projects: Be part of something bigger than yourself. Leadership is about ordinary people achieving extraordinary results. Work side by side with practicing leaders in a variety of projects pertaining to your course of study and make a real difference. You, too, can become an agent for change! Help underserved children, work with a community non-profit organization or act as a consultant for an emerging business. You will practice leadership skills in a real world setting and learn the meaning of becoming a true servant leader!
- Mentorships with Proven Leaders: Learn from the leaders in the trenches! Become a part of a professional mentor/mentee relationship and extend your knowledge and your network. Professional mentors provide guidance and encourage you to become the leader you are meant to be.
