Advancing Warriors Program

Advancing Warriors Graphic

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.

NOTE: Due to some staffing changes within the Warriors L.E.A.D. Series, there will be no programs offered until Fall 2017. We look forward to helping you grow in your leadership development soon!
