Participants also receive networking and mentor support from both the University and corporate leaders, and have access to a minimum of 6 exclusive sessions with distinguished alumni and the Chancellor. The goal of this program is to encourage students to match their passions, strength and skills to a student organization or campus need with a plan to seek a leadership position and continue to build their leadership skills for their professional life.
