Leadership in New Zealand Faculty-led Travel Program

Leadership involves understanding people and helping them reach commonly held goals. Visiting other countries and cultures stretches our awareness of human potential and exposes us to new ways of doing familiar things.

The Leadership Education faculty-led travel program is designed to immerse students emotionally, socially, physically, and intellectually while providing students with a New Zealand cultural leadership experience.
