Leader@SHIP Mission Statement
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.
