Bennett’s plan for offering women an education conducive to excellence in scholarly pursuits, that prepares them for leadership roles in the workplace, and the world, will be attained by achieving the following two goals:
Goal 1: To engage female students in meaningful co-curricular experiences that will:
- Provide students with advance leadership training;
- Provide educational and skill development through interventions to enhance basic skill development in oral and written communications, using the tools of technology, and managing time, financial, and human resources;
- Offer opportunities to experience professional development through participation in conferences, workshops and seminars;
- Acquaint them with the theoretical and practical aspects of leadership by offering workshops; and
- Equip them with the tools needed to pursue additional studies in leadership development and/or to assume entry-level leadership roles in the workforce.
Goal 2: To provide students the opportunity to develop and practice sound leadership principles by:
- Community Service: serving the campus, local and global communities;
- Networking and collaborating with leaders on campus and in the community;
- Learning to form and work in collaborative teams with peers, faculty, and others; and
- Develop student confidence and certainty that they have the potential to change the world.
Through participation in these activities, students will be able to: 1) build strategic skills for effective decision making, strategy development, and implementation; b) expand their capacity to lead cross-functional initiatives and corporate projects amid challenging global issues; c) develop a personal leadership philosophy that reflects greater knowledge, capabilities, and insight; and d) learn to act out of humanitarian values, such as being committed to social justice, engaging in social responsibility, and serving as positive social change agents.
