Assessment, Challenge & Support: Our Framework for Contextualizing Collegiate Leadership Development

Assessment, Challenge & Support: Our Framework for Contextualizing Collegiate Leadership Development

On Demand

Duration: 1 hour

About the Webinar

Leadership development for students is an increasingly important part of the higher education experience. When students graduate, they’ll need to do more than apply lessons learned in the classroom. They’ll also be expected to be self-aware, skilled collaborators who are effective individual contributors with the potential to lead teams, departments, and eventually entire organizations.

But curricula are not “one size fits all.” Successful collegiate leadership development hinges on contextualizing a program to your institution, your shared goals, and your students.

This webinar will highlight our Assessment – Challenge – Support (ACS)™
framework to explore how you can create success in and out of the classroom through deliberate, thoughtful program development. Participants will leave with an understanding of the ACS framework and how to apply it to their students’ leadership journey.

You can also learn more about collegiate leadership development with customized leadership development tailored to your organization’s unique context and culture.
