Cultivating Alumni Engagement in Undergraduate Leadership Education: The Villanova University Student Leadership Forum
Gigliotti, Ralph
Journal of Leadership Education, v14 n3 p152-158 Sum 2015
As Villanova University embarked on a new strategic plan in 2009, the Division of Student Life placed a renewed emphasis on co-curricular leadership education (Gigliotti, 2014, in press). This Application Brief will highlight one of the new student leadership initiatives, the Student Leadership Forum in Washington, DC. Referred throughout the paper as the Forum, this initiative provides an opportunity to engage students in an elevated level of conversation related to the intersection of leadership, ethics, and integrity within the context of our Nation's Capital. The program encourages students to explore the connections between the University's mission and their experiences as student leaders. Finally, by cultivating connections with alumni in the Washington, DC area, the Forum offers a model for alumni engagement in undergraduate leadership education.
