Our Vision

We believe that students can learn to lead effectively from any level of an organization. Whether in a formal leadership role, as a member of a team, or as a contributor to an organization or a community, students can demonstrate personal and team leadership in many different settings.

We provide experiences in the form of academic courses, co-curricular workshops and events, global immersions, and leadership experience projects, and more.

To learn how to get involved with the Institute, simply e-mail: leadership@uakron.edu or call 330-972-8115 to schedule an appointment.
