The program will develop students’ leadership competencies through self-reflection, experiential learning, exploration of team dynamics, cross culture communication, and civic engagement.

The Student Leadership Challenge is designed for engaged student leaders who are looking to further develop their leadership skills and take their organization, community or program to the next level of excellence. Participants will develop their leadership skills by learning how the five practices of exemplary leadership; Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart.

EIL allows an individual to identify and understand their own emotions and those of others, then appropriately manage and channel those emotions into interactions within a particular leadership context.
