John Wiley & Sons Inc. today announces a partnership with Collegiate Empowerment®, a 501c3 nonprofit education production company committed to the mission of Helping College Students Get What They Want and Need, to bring The Student Leadership Challenge Experience to universities nationwide.
The Student Leadership Challenge Experience takes the time-tested content of The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® and combines it with the high-energy, engaging and relevant teaching style of Collegiate Empowerment to deliver unique leadership seminars directly to students on college campuses. The Student Leadership Challenge Experience teaches that leadership development is essential for personal development and the first step to helping students clarify a bigger vision for themselves and the impact they will make in the world.
“The Student Leadership Challenge Experience was developed to bring a leadership experience that’s fun, entertaining and full of information with lasting results to universities,” said Tony D’Angelo, Founder and Producer of Collegiate Empowerment. “By combining The Five Practices outlined in Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner’s The Student Leadership Challenge with the Collegiate Empowerment approach, we’re able to meet students where they’re at and guide them through a meaningful conversation that illuminates their own personal best leadership experience as well as insights into the bigger questions of who they are and what impact they will make.”
The Student Leadership Challenge Experience approach has four steps: information, association, inspiration and application. Each step builds on the last to take participants deeper into The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership to see how the practices turn up in students’ daily lives. It creates a shared leadership language among student clubs and organizations, residence halls and student cohorts so young leaders can talk about leadership issues and run their organizations, groups and teams in a way that fosters collaboration and sustainability throughout the academic year.
Two schools have completed The Student Leadership Challenge Experience with Collegiate Empowerment with great success: Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA and Arizona State University. The program is now being expanded and will be utilized by 25 universities in 2015.
“The Student Leadership Challenge Experience has proven to inspire our students to seize opportunities and take the initiative to make a difference,” said Lawrence Mannolini III, Director of Student Programs and Leadership Development at Lycoming College. “We find the content of this program is an invaluable asset for the goals our students have following their collegiate experience. It is a program we trust and one that the students find relatable.”
The Student Leadership Challenge Experience is now available for leadership seminars, retreats and conferences nationwide.
