The Manhattan College Leadership Development Program is a certificate program that is focused on the development of student leaders. The program is a collaboration, led by the Office of the Dean of Students, which utilizes the knowledge and talents of many offices in Student Life to prepare students to take on vital leadership roles in clubs and organizations, and other leadership positions like Resident Assistants and Orientation Leaders. The program will serve as the place for students to develop connections with each other, as well as with administrators who work with student leaders on campus.
The program uses self-scheduled format that will allow students to work through the program at their own pace.
The Leadership Development Program was created with the understanding that leadership is something that can be learned and developed, not position based, and applicable in any situation.
Through participating in the Leadership Development Program, students will:
develop an understanding of various concepts of leadership, including theories, styles, and leadership in the context of the College's Lasallian Catholic heritage.
reflect on their experiences and understanding to develop their personal leadership style.
identify themselves as a core group of leaders on campus.
