2018 Was a Terrific Year!
Last year was a huge success! With the help of their mentors, students completed service learning projects such as:
  • Designing and delivering wellness workshops
  • Creating and disseminating a student Resource Guide
  • Presenting workshops at Calapooia Albany Watershed Council Outdoor School

Leadership in Action in The Source
  The Leadership Academy was featured in the Spring 2019 Edition of the College of Agricultural Sciences' magazine The Source. Hear about students like Melissa Wong, a senior studying Food Science and Technology and how she utilized a Leadership Academy scholarship to attend a food science workshop all about ice cream at the Food Innovation Center in Portland. 


What's New?

We accepted our biggest cohort yet-54 fellows from both the College of Agricultural Sciences and College of Forestry! Watch for pics next month!

We are pleased to announce Dr. Haley Traini successfully completed her dissertation this Summer and is now an Assistant Professor! She will continue to teach Leadership Education courses in both the Leadership Minor and in the Leadership Academy. Congratulations, Dr. Traini!
