Dominican hosts Bay Area LeaderShape event

Fifty students from universities throughout the Bay Area spent six days on the Dominican campus June 3-8 building their leadership skills as part of the Dominican LeaderShape program. LeaderShape is a national training program for college students that focuses on supporting students to lead with integrity.

LeaderShape was developed in 1986 at the University of Illinois as a means of improving campus leadership. To date, more than 50,000 college students have attended LeaderShape nationally.

This was Dominican’s fifth year hosting LeaderShape for a Bay Area consortium of colleges. Dominican’s is the only LeaderShape program open to multiple colleges in Northern California. Among colleges sending students to the Dominican conference are University of San Francisco, Cal State Monterey, and U.C. Merced.

Offered at Dominican through the Institute for Leadership Studies, LeaderShape is an interactive, energizing, and unique experience for undergraduates. The six-day program is designed to emphasize self-discovery and learning from practical experiences that build students’ leadership concepts and abilities.

At the end of the LeaderShape experience students increase their commitment to act consistently with core ethical values, personal values, and convictions.
