We believe everyone has the potential to be a leader and everyone can make a positive impact in their community. The Leadership Challenge Program is designed for students interested in building their leadership skills and confidence while actively participating in our vibrant campus community. At the Office of Student Engagement, we are committed to the development of student leaders and student organizations on campus. Are you ready to take the Leadership Challenge?
The Leadership Challenge Program focuses on developing students into active leaders and positive change-makers. The program is divided into two phases to meet the diverse needs of AACC students. The program is free. You may begin at any time and completion of the requirements is self-paced.
Phase 1 introduces you to leadership and focuses on leading of self and others through practical skill development workshops and involvement in campus life. Students who complete Phase 1 are honored at the annual Student Engagement Honors and Awards Ceremony in April. After completing the portfolio, students are eligible to move on to Phase 2.
Phase 2 builds on your leadership experience by guiding you through expanded topics in leadership including servant leadership, ethical leadership, articulating a vision, and developing a personal leadership philosophy. Students are required to complete additional skills workshops, volunteer hours and the Leadership Development class. Students who add these components to their leadership portfolio receive a Leadership Challenge Program certificate and will be honored at the annual Student Engagement Honors and Awards Ceremony in April.
