Experiential Leadership

A large part of life at the Mount is learning leadership skills that will help you both personally and professionally. University leadership development programs such as AMP, C.O.R.E. and P.E.A.C.E. are experiential in nature – you learn while doing and build upon your academics in a more hands-on way.

Nia Brown, C'21

Freshman year I was a CORE Leader and a freshman ambassador. Sophomore year I became the secretary of the Maryland Student Legislature. Junior year I joined the V.O.I.C.E. Executive Board and also became the vice president of Women in Business. All of these activities have a common thread, servant leadership. I have always strived to be in service to others.
