Students who are Leadership Fellows at Methodist University are committed to making a difference in their university, their community, and the world. They are driven to acquire the knowledge, values, and skills that will empower them for extraordinary leadership.
New fellows are selected each spring from the class of first-year students who entered Methodist University in the fall. Selection is based on academic excellence, exceptional character, a proven record of leadership, and a commitment to engage in a rigorous program of personal leadership development throughout their time at the University.
Students in the multi–year program have these opportunities:
FRESHMEN: To be selected
as a Leadership Fellow Candidate, a student submits an application and
a Personal Leadership Development Plan. If approved, the student is admitted
as a candidate. Candidates begin to participate in Tally Center courses
and other Leadership Fellow activities.
Optional activities include: Living in the Leadership Learning Community, participating in SL@M, and joining campus organizations. If approved, they are designated Leadership Fellows.
JUNIORS: As Leadership
Fellows, students continue their leadership development by attending off-campus
conferences, participating in internships and mentorship relationships,
and serving in actual leadership positions on campus, in addition to courses
and other activities.
Optional activities include: Additional Leadership course work, Leadership Minor, internships, ROTC Advanced Camp, shadowing experience, and joining campus organizations.
SENIORS: Finish their leadership development and submit a portfolio of documentation and updated plan to apply for the Certificate of Completion. Those who successfully complete the program are recognized at the campus-wide Awards Ceremony where they receive a handsome certificate and an honor cord to be worn at commencement. Successful completion of the program is also recognized on the MU co-curricular transcript.
