Student Leadership Academy supports student learning outcomes

The Student Leadership Academy (SLA) is an engagement tool used by the College of Nursing & Health Sciences Student Support Services office that supports students’ holistically in academic, personal, and professional success. In doing so, the academy works to shape students as leaders taking charge of their own college experience with a greater appreciation for self-awareness, resiliency, and humility as an ever-evolving individual. The SLA weekend is designed to transform students’ mindsets on academic success.

Programs such as the Student Leadership Academy, the Wingman Experience, etc. are supported by evidence-based research on student engagement, retention, and success. Research on effective advising for postsecondary education, transformational leadership, and models for student retention will be the driving philosophy in developing desired academy outcomes.
