Leadership Excellence Electives

Program Overview

Although open to all, the Leadership Excellence Electives are specifically designed with the Leadership Excellence (LE) graduates in mind.  Unlike the original 7-week series, these offerings can be taken individually on an as needed basis.  Our first offering under the LE II banner was 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (summer of 2007).  Since then, 3 to 4 LE II workshops have been offered each year to support the development needs of leaders on campus.
