Welcome to the Presidential Student Leadership Academy webp年龄. I am very pleased that you are here, very proud of this program, and hope that you will seriously consider applying for this unique opportunity to experience and learn about leadership in this ever-changing and demanding world. 在过去的几年里,你们可能听我说过:“领导力很重要!” Whether you are a member of a student-led club or honor society, 运动队, 一间教室, a volunteer organization, or a college community, 领导力决定了推动团队使命和成就的品质和价值观. When you graduate from Delaware Tech, 领导能力将决定你工作经历的质量和价值, the quality of life that you live, and the type of world we leave for the future. 本课程的目标是帮助你为这些机会做好准备.

马克T. Brainard, President.

Through a series of activities over the next few months – readings, 讨论组, writing reflections, a trip to 华盛顿特区.C., 顶点会议——我们将探讨自我意识等主题, 同理心, servant leadership, 同情, 批判性思维和历史在我们今天的决策中的作用. To lead these activities and provide participants with a meaningful, high quality leadership experience, 在接下来的几周内,我将与学院的高级行政团队成员一起亲自召集并推动会议.

毫无疑问,领导力包括在职业生涯中拥有才能和专业知识, but there is so much more. 在我们相处的几周里,我们将挖掘一些“更多”. If you are selected to participate, 我相信,PSLA将以令人难忘的方式吸引你们,以增加你们对这一非常重要主题的了解, 同时也扩大了你对国家历史和文化的认识, all to influence your growth as a future leader.
