The Academy of Leaders (AOL) is a leadership development certification program for students developed by The Center for Leadership and Service.
AOL Online is designed to help students enhance their leadership skills in a more engaging way than typical classes. It begins with having students explore who they are as a leader by discovering their MBTI type. Following that, students will work through modules designed to cultivate their leadership skills by following "The Leadership Challenge" model.
Through videos, case studies, activities, readings, and reflections, students will explore the five practices that define exemplary leadership:
- Model the Way
- Inspire a shared vision
- Challenge the process
- Enable others to act
- Encourage the heart
AOL Online is a self-paced, non-credit Canvas workshop that is offered in the Fall and Spring for fully online students. Students who take classes on either campus and who are interested in the Academy of Leaders should contact the Center for Leadership and Service for more information.
