What do past participants have to say about the program?

The program was a wonderful opportunity. I had the chance to reflect on my higher education, discover new strengths about myself, gain feedback on my resume from administrative professionals, and collaborate with other students.
 
The program gave me a chance to reflect on my education, polish my resume, and prepare myself to be a leader beyond graduation.
 
I gained a lot of insight on who I am as a leader. This allowed me to reflect to see what different qualities I can change or add to become an even better leader for the communities I want to serve.
