Leadership Programs across the Campus: Who's Teaching What from Where? The Student Affairs-Administered Program.
Smitter, Amy
The Leadership and Service Programs office at Ball State University in Indiana started the Excellence in Leadership Program in 1994. Funding for three years was secured from the Kellogg Foundation to develop a comprehensive leadership program that would be run by the student activities staff in cooperation with Academic Affairs. After the grant period expired, the university funded the program. Although the program is administered by a student affairs office, involvement with faculty, the University College, and the community is essential to the program's success. Excellence in Leadership is a 4-phase, 4-year program that develops students, using three leadership theories: situational, ethical or principle centered, and servant leadership. Phase 1 focuses on confidence and self esteem; phase 2 focuses on involvement and student organizations; phase 3 focuses on servant leadership and volunteerism on campus and in the larger community; and phase 4 connects students with their future professions and leadership outside the university. The Excellence in Leadership program uses mentoring, workshops, local and national speakers, a Leadership Resource Center, retreats, and individual projects to teach leadership skills. Such programs are common and generally effective. Student affairs administrators seek to educate students while giving them quality co-curricular opportunities. (NKA)
