Leadership: Defined


In Campus Life, we define leadership in congruence with the Leadership Minor. Visually, we see ethical, strategic leadership growing from and being guided by the internal values in the self. The TRUEMU Leader lives authentically in line with their values, engages in meaningful relationships, and actively responds to the needs of their community to move towards positive social change.
