Leadership Davidson is one of the most prestigious leadership development opportunities. It allows our most powerful student organization leaders to network, collaborate, and further develop their leadership knowledge, skills and awareness. Leadership Davidson is an investment in students who have taken on the responsibility of leading student organizations. We believe this investment has a ripple effect strengthening the individual participants, their organizations, and the members of their organizations. Furthermore, we want to prepare these dedicated leaders to be highly effective as they head out into the world beyond Davidson.
Leadership Davidson combines a year-long series of 12 seminars with a mentoring experience. Mentors are recruited from among successful corporate and community leaders in response to participants' expressed interests. Past students have found this experience to be amazing. The program will begin in the fall and run for approximately six weeks each semester. Dean Tom Shandley and Assistant Dean Rebecca Taylor will facilitate this program.
