“What does it mean to be a good leader?” Quest projects in this category should seek to answer this question in creative ways. You can identify and engage in experiences that emphasize character, integrity, and professionalism in various contexts or concentrate on increasing your self-awareness and enhancing your personal development.

Quest projects in leadership can take many forms, and it is possible to apply the hours you spend completing your Quest project toward the curriculum requirements of the University’s Leadership Program. Some possibilities include:

• Service learning, coalition building, activism, or other efforts geared to effecting positive change in your community;
• Coordinating with other individuals or organizations to plan, organize, and host an event for a common purpose;
• Engaging in volunteer abroad programs, international student development, foreign policy education, or diversity awareness projects;
• Participating in an innovative business or service project that involves leadership training for your fellow students, coworkers, or colleagues.
