Over the course of three months, the participants will attend ten workshops on different topics that will give them the tools to be successful leaders on and off the WNMU campus. All workshops take place on Fridays from 3-4pm in the Meeting Room of the Student Memorial Building. Feel free to bring food!

Discover Leadership Program is based on four assumptions: 

  • WNMU is committed to developing the leadership capabilities within its community;
  • Effective leadership skills can be taught and learned at the university and in the community;
  • The university environment is a strategic and appropriate setting for mastering both leadership theory and leadership skills; and
  • The success of leadership is measured by direct impact on individuals, organizations, and society.
