Mountaineer Leadership Academy

Mountaineer Leadership Academy is a four-year leadership curriculum that progresses through the Freshmen, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior academic years, identifying specific qualities of leadership development relative to the student’s interest of study to establish a foundation of leadership to be applied to the greater systematic whole.

Freshmen Year: Self-Leadership

The Freshmen year focuses on students’ exploration of leadership. An awareness of different leadership theories is established to create a foundation of leadership that students can build upon.

Sophomore Year: Community Leadership

Communication, responsibility, and connection to the systematic well-being of the community are established as a fundamental leadership quality for student leadership development.

The Sophomore Year is created as a continued Living Learning experience to allow students to engage in continued interactions within a familiar community to communicate and understand the implementation of personal leadership philosophies in a community.

Junior Year: Collaborative Leadership

The Junior year focuses on expanding community leadership into collaborative leadership. The expansion of leadership across boundaries into different communities builds upon students understanding of community leadership by providing opportunities to expand leadership skills and attributes across boundaries to broaden the systematic whole established through partnerships with other communities.
