One important strategy to facilitate Leadership skill development is the use of Mentors, i.e., previous participants with knowledge of the content and the LC culture and processes.  Mentors facilitate teams, provide consultation, share their experiences, and support participants with their learning process.  They volunteer their time to create the best possible learning experience for participants.

I strongly recommend that you contact an LC Mentor or a previous participant to learn more about the LCI.  Their experience and words-of-wisdom will be extremely helpful as you decide whether this course makes sense in your life at this time.

Special Thanks to the LC Mentors

for recognizing a Leadership Call-to-Action, stepping up as Emergent Leaders and taking Leadership Action to help create the best possible learning experience for LC participants!

And Thanks to the Mentors’ Supervisors

for supporting the Mentor’s ongoing involvement with the LC.  Their time with us takes time away from their other duties.  Their departments are making a vital contribution to OSU and to OSU’s Vision, Mission and Values!
