Program components range from interactive classroom sessions to field trips and social activities. Each day will focus on specific leader aspects that will address core competencies such as:

  • Conflict Management

  • Ethics and Values/Integrity and Trust and
  • Managing Vision and Purpose

Participants will gain knowledge of KSU's organizational structure, strategic goals, and mission as well as be exposed to leadership roles and operations at the Board of Regents and State Capitol. The program is a rewarding experience that will give each participant a sense of value to their leadership roles on campus and how everyone, regardless of your specific role, is a major factor in the success of Kennesaw State University.
