The mission of Leader@SHIP is to engage students outside of the classroom in a holistically empowering way and provide challenging experiences that promote intellectual, social, ethical, and psychological growth. Leader@SHIP is committed to fostering the development of student leaders in their professions and communities through the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership from the Student Leadership Challenge. Through self-exploration and experiential opportunities, we strive to cultivate the development of leadership values and strengths, multiculturalism and activism, interpersonal connections, and civic engagement that will complement the student's passion and future aspirations.
