Advancing Warriors Program

The Advancing Warriors program is open to ALL students and is designed for students who:

  • want to boost their leadership skills and knowledge to the next level
  • want to learn best practices in leadership
  • want to make a difference at Winona State University

The program is based on the Student Leadership Challenge in which students will complete an online 360 degree inventory that enables them to take a look at their current leadership skills and to build upon their immense potential to make a real difference in society. Focusing on the 5 Practices of Exemplary Leaders, the Student Leadership Challenge offers students the opportunity to measure their current leadership strengths and weaknesses, to make a plan for improvement, and to commit to growing as a leader.

In addition to the valuable information you will learn, all participants will get to put their new leadership skills into practice by working on a campus service project of helping to re-design the Warriors L.E.A.D. Series program for the future. You will not want to miss this fun opportunity to make help shape the future of WSU leaders !

This program is offered both Fall and Spring semester and there is no cost to participate.
