Leadership Development at LVC seeks to support the College’s call to prepare our students to be “people of broad vision, capable of making informed decisions” and help them “acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to live and work in our rapidly changing world.” In the spirit of collaboration with various campus offices and academic departments, LVC provides several opportunities to enhance student learning and assist all students with developing their potential to create meaningful, positive change in themselves, their organizations, and their community.
- The Leadership Institute: This fun and innovative program provides an opportunity for students to reflect on their leadership-related experiences and increase their personal skills. The program invites outside speakers to present sessions on a broad range of topics. A capstone portfolio is an opportunity for students to display leadership learning and activities in one place. The portfolio should demonstrate that students are equipped with the superior knowledge, skills, perspectives, and experiences associated with leadership development.
Students completing the program will earn a certificate in leadership from the Division of Student Affairs.
- Sigma Alpha Pi is an honor society run through the National Society of Leadership and Success. The society offers life-changing lectures from the nation’s leading presenters and a community where like-minded, success-oriented individuals come together and help one another succeed. Students at LVC are nominated for this honor by meeting criteria based on class standing, GPA, and involvement. Once nominated, students fulfill a series of criteria for induction into Sigma Alpha Pi.
- The Student Leadership Resource Library (housed in the Center for Student Engagement): the Resource Library provides books and materials for students interested in learning more on leadership topics. Stop by and find information on managing groups, teambuilding, working with organization, and much more. Students may check items out from the Library for shorts periods of time.
