The Advanced Leadership Development Program offers a personalized approach to leadership yet offers the opportunity to work with a group of diverse peers. I was able to identify my leadership strengths and weaknesses while utilizing the tools provided to self-improve. This program has allowed me to recognize the value that the College places on its members.
