Philadelphia L.E.A.D.S - The Division of Student Development is rolling out a new Leadership Program. L.I.F.E. Leadership Program. The Student Experience should ultimately translate into bringing all theories to LIFE. The college process is filled with academic rigor to lead, innovation to stay ahead and on the cutting edge, and flourishing experiences to spark and awaken the yearning spirit within and bring out what is within - to educate.  The LIFE Leadership program is delivered through experiential learning experiences throughout the academic year. 

L - Lead - Discover various leadership styles

I – Innovate – Creative faculty partnerships and programming

F – Flourish - growing and developing students in outdoor experiential leadership activities, which ultimately provide a healthy and organic environment in which the student grows and tests their leadership skills

E-Educate – Working from the etymology of the word educate – educere - ‘lead out’. Giving the opportunity for students to nurture and grow their natural talents and abilities

We use CliftonStrengths? Why are CliftonStrengths important? What is CliftonStrengths? 

Using CliftonStrengths allows teams to move beyond an understanding of common "types" of people on a team. It allows for more specific insight into the natural talent of the individuals on the team and the collective strengths of the team.
