Lead. Learn.

We believe there's a leader in everyone.  The art is understanding the kind of leader you are.  Is your leadership style charismatic, participative, situational, transactional, transformational, or are you a quiet leader or servant leader?  Not quite sure?  That's what you learn about yourself at Cottey either by finding your leadership style by taking the lead in one of the many clubs and organizations on campus or by participating in our leadership program Leadership, Experiences, Opportunity or LEO - or do both!  You'll gain insights and skills that will benefit you in every aspect of your life from career to social situations to parenthood and everything in between. Not to mention you'll have lots of fun!

While not mandatory, we encourage you to participate in LEO.  It's a four-level leadership certification program that connects you with women leaders on campus and in the community.  You'll focus on the leadership aspects of activities and organizations in which you're already involved, attend interactive workshops, participate in special events that include dinners, guest speakers, and cultural activities, and interact with Cottey's annual Leader-in-Residence.
