“Explorations in Leadership focuses on the myriad of qualities professionals need to succeed,” says Helene Klein, Honors Program Co-Director and English Instructor. “This class exposes students to presentations by leaders in various fields and also the opportunity to interview these leaders. Students also face weekly leadership mini challenges and hypothetical situations which require ongoing leadership skill development and team work. A visual/oral presentation celebration documenting the project and a portfolio of work, including metacognitive self-reflection, is required to complete the class.”
Arcadia’s Honors Program integrates the Honors students’ drive to succeed academically with their ability to create change through local, national and global leadership. Students in this integrative and dynamic program become a community of learners, doers and emerging professionals as they engage in a challenging, interdisciplinary curriculum that explores new avenues of inquiry and venues of learning while putting their talents to work in service-learning opportunities both at Arcadia and on a more global campus.
