Lafayette Leadership Education Committee (LLEC) & Internships
The Leadership Education Committee is comprised of select students, administrators, and faculty who meet weekly to plan student leadership educational opportunities each year. A mission statement, created by the committee and other student affairs professionals, guides their work.
Leadership Exploration for Emerging Leaders
If you are interested in stepping into a leadership position, the catalyst is identifying your passion and values. You cannot lead an organization until you first leader yourself. This 3-hour program is designed to help you learn to take strategic action and tap into your personal vision.
Collegiate Leadership Competition (CLC)
Teams consisting of 6-7 students train with coaches who guide their teams through five modules of the leadership curriculum. Five practice sessions of 90-minute each culminate in a competition against the other teams in November.
Leadership Institute (LLI)
The Lafayette Leadership Institute in February each year is an award-winning, one-day conference that educates student leaders through featured speakers, workshops, and a distinguished alumni panel. Attendees will come away viewing leadership as learn-able set of behaviors.
A series of workshops for students are scheduled to help build a foundation for developing competent leaders.
Awards & Recognition
There are a number of ways to ensure individuals, programs and organizations are recognized for exhibiting leadership albeit for a moment in time or over a sustained period.
Leadership Education Approach
Our strategic approach to leadership education is grounded in leadership theory and established research involving undergraduate leadership development, leadership identity development, and student learning. To be comprehensive the methodology is to be fundamental, developmental, and experiential.
Leadership Education Internship(s)
We are accepting applications for this experience through October 30th! This is an exciting opportunity to influence our evolution and explore your own leadership capacity. Two student interns, who are also members of the larger LLEC, are the primary forces behind the logistical preparations needed to implement the Leadership Institute.
