Burnt Orange Leadership Development

The Burnt Orange Leadership Development fellowship is a new, selective initiative from the Leadership and Ethics Institute dedicated to empowering students through a program designed to develop their skills in six leadership areas: Integrity, Collaboration, Self-Awareness, Intercultural Development, Communication, and Problem Solving.

The Burnt Orange Leadership Development fellowship is designed to be completed in 5 or fewer semesters. Students will create personalized leadership development plans and carry them out through leadership training and learning activities, service projects, student organization participation, faculty-guided research projects, and/or professional job experience. All Burnt Orange Leadership Development fellows will either select or be assisted in finding a faculty member to serve as their mentor.

The purpose of this fellowship is to help students develop leadership skills, make the experiences they are having at the university purposeful, and gain the ability to turn those experiences into marketable skills. The Burnt Orange Leadership Development fellowship is personalized by design, and students will be able to customize their experience to fit their lives, schedules, and interests, to have the most effective and productive experience possible.

The fellowship will culminate in each fellow producing a digital portfolio of their experiences and accomplishments, as well as participation in a completion ceremony.
