The Leadership Academy at American University (AU) develops courageous and ethical future leaders of diverse intellectual curiosity, and a passion for learning, service and achieving uncommon success. This is accomplished by providing students with a unique opportunity to participate in seminars, lectures, colloquiums, and practical workshops that are designed to develop a capacity to lead in a complex global society.
Some of the opportunities include:
Leadership seminars and workshops
Special conversations with campus administrators
Colloquiums and lectures with AU faculty
Mentorship and networking opportunities with AU faculty, staff, and alumni
Serving in a leadership position on the Academy Governance or Academy Advisory
Event management training
Advanced problem analysis and problem solving simulations
Residents, or academy fellows, can discover and develop their leadership identity within a community of learners with activities facilitated by a dynamic group of student leaders, faculty, and staff.
Interested students can apply for a space through the housing application.
