Leadership Development

​CMU has chosen to define programs, services, and courses that contribute to leadership education by: “building capacity to solve problems, create value, and thrive in a changing and challenging world” (Heifetz, R., 2016). This definition is achieved through leadership knowledge and outcomes, identity development, healthy relationships, and social responsibility.
