Why leadership?

The Office for Student Engagement leadership programs are designed to develop student leadership at all levels.  It is the vision of University of Michigan-Dearborn leadership programs to:

  • Develop socially  responsible, critical thinkers
  • Inspire students to be conscientious and engaged citizens at the collegiate, regional, national and global level
  • Engage students at a personal level in their own communities
  • Prepare students to lead with purpose

Blueprints

Blueprints is a transformational leadership development opportunity for student leaders committed to positive social change. The program is a comprehensive, year long leadership opportunity which helps students refine their leadership skills, understand the context of leadership through leadership theory education, and become agents of positive social change.

Leadership Lens Film Series


 

This Leadership Lens Film Series, a new piece of the growing leadership program at the University of Michigan-Dearborn.

This film series will expose students, faculty and staff to poignant, controversial, and conversation starting films, relevant to leadership.  After each film, moderated discussion will allow all attendees the opportunity to participate by sharing their thoughts and ideas about the film, the broad issues in the film, and leadership.
