Haub School Develops Leadership Program for Undergraduates

Monday, September 12, 2011

The Haub School of Business introduced a leadership development program for undergraduate students in the Fall 2011 semester. Spearheaded by Ronald Dufresne, Ph.D., assistant professor of management, and Vana Zervanos ’07 (MBA), associate dean, the new program will teach students about the Jesuit framework of leadership as each student explores his or her own projected role in business and the community in which they live.

“The Leadership Development Program is going to be a great opportunity for students to learn the state-of-the-art theories about leadership, and more importantly, to have the opportunity to practice leadership skills,” says Dufresne. “The program is Ignatian throughout:  deeply reflective and at the same time committed to making a real difference in our community.”

All first-year undergraduate students are eligible to apply to the four-year co-curricular program. Designed to be progressive in nature, the students will build on skills, lessons and experiences of the prior year with increasing demands and responsibilities. Components of the program include workshops, speaker presentations, service opportunities, a teaching assistantship, and a formalized mentor/mentee program.
