All students, faculty and staff are encouraged to join special guests from the community and around the country at a Leadership Day presentation from 11 a.m.-noon April 10 in Steele Hall Mainstage Theatre.

Speakers including University President Angelo Armenti, Jr., faculty members and students will address the Cal U Leader for Life process and outline progress toward achieving Lighthouse University status.

In August, Cal U was named the world’s first Franklin Covey Leadership University in recognition of its efforts to incorporate leadership principles into teaching, learning and campus life.

Since then, students have begun participating in the campus-wide leadership development process based on the principles outlined in Dr. Stephen R. Covey’s bestselling book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

All students are eligible for the process. It will be available for faculty and staff members later this spring.

“Leadership Day is one of the criteria that will enable Cal U to achieve Lighthouse University status,” explained Ron Paul, executive director of the Character Education Institute.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for the University to open its doors and show our community and guests from other higher education institutions the progress we have made with the Leader for Life process thus far.”

Students can document their participation in the Leader for Life process on their Activities Transcript. Those who complete the Leader for Life courses, attend Leadership Forums, meet with a Career Services adviser and complete a capstone project can earn the Leader for Life certificate and a graduation cord to wear at Commencement.
