This summer course will nurture creative minds, global interests and a desire to lead. Led by John Dau and Carolyn Villanueva, you will explore your own identity, share your own story and learn from the stories of others. Cultural wisdom tales, invited speakers, field trips and activities will be used to reveal universal core values and leadership skills. Lessons will help you reflect on yourself and how you will lead others. In the end, you will design your own pathway to leadership.
