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. 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.

The 5 Practices of Exemplary Leadership:

Model the Way

Student leaders Model the Way by finding their voice and affirming shared values

Inspire Shared Vision

Student leaders Inspire a Shared Vision by envisioning the future and enlisting others in a common vision

Challenge the Process

Student leaders Challenge the Process by searching for opportunities and by experimenting, taking risks, and learning from mistakes

Enable Others to Act

Student leaders Enable Others to Act by fostering collaboration and strengthening others

Encourage the Heart

Student leaders Encourage the Heart by recognizing contributions and celebrating values and victories
