The aim of Leadership Programs in the Department of Student Life is to offer an array of opportunities for students to develop a definition of leadership,
informed by their personal experience and a deep understanding of how their strengths
and talents can serve society. Leadership at FIT is defined as a shared process wherein
individual strengths combine across disciplines and backgrounds to create a more equitable
and sustainable global community. Leadership programs and offerings complement the
work of other areas in the division, and enhance these experiences by providing an
overarching leadership framework that emphasizes self-awareness and personal strengths,
shared leadership, group dynamics, and a commitment for positive social change. Embedded
in all of our efforts is a commitment to social consciousness and civic engagement.
Leaders at every stage are inclusive, innovative, civically minded, and interdisciplinary.
