FLO is committed to developing the strengths of humble and ambitious students, so that they persist in making a difference on campus and in the world. Students will deeply understand and explore The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership: Model the Way, Inspire A Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act and Encourage the Heart and the first three C’s of the Social Change Model of Leadership: consciousness of self, congruence and commitment.
