The Hilbert College Leadership Scholarship Program is an intensive four-year experience designed to assist recipients in developing and refining their leadership skills. Students engage in numerous experiential learning programs which allow them to become involved on campus and in the community in a meaningful way. The program uses a variety of methods to meet the unique learning styles of all participants. Workshops, distinguished speakers, service learning, and adventure-based programs are all essential components of the program.
Each year of the leadership program has a different focus. First-year participants will participate in a self-assessment designed to familiarize them with their strengths and areas for further development. In this first-year program, participants will take Introduction to Leadership (GS 160) and begin to form the foundational skills to assist them throughout their four years in the program. Second-year participants explore leadership in group settings, developing an understanding of the diversity around them while building team skills. Juniors hone their professional skills and job readiness through an intensive program that includes resume writing, interview skills, job search techniques, and business etiquette. In the senior year, students focus on goal setting for their post-graduate professional and civic lives.
At all levels, students are expected to be involved in campus activities, clubs, and their community to put into practice the concepts they have learned. It is no secret that employers are seeking candidates who demonstrate problem-solving skills, team attitude, strong communication skills, and above all, leadership ability. The Leadership Scholarship Program is designed to support students as they develop these skills and positively contribute to the betterment of their community.
"Being a part of the Leadership Program at Hilbert was a transformative experience. I was challenged to develop as a leader both personally and professionally. The program provided opportunity to deeply connect with other students, faculty/staff, and the surrounding community.”
