"The Leadership Washburn program was a valuable experience. Through participation, I have discovered what it means to be a true leader. I have been exposed to leadership concepts that I wasn’t familiar with before this class and have learned many tools to put to use in my position here at Washburn. I have also been able to reflect on my own leadership skills and style. Through group discussions and individual exercises I am more aware of my strengths and areas where I want to improve. I am more aware of the connectedness of our campus and how we can work together to achieve goals. It has been very rewarding to see how energetic, positive and passionate others are about making Washburn a great place for students, faculty and staff.
“The time, energy and money put into this program was a wise investment. This program not only changed my work life but my personal life as well. I am a better (stronger) person because of this program. I suspect Washburn will reap the benefits of this program from its investment in Leadership Washburn until we retire…It is impossible to calculate how many bottlenecks, problems, and mistakes have been averted in our careers because of this program.”

“The thoughtfulness that was put into designing the program with representatives across campus and varying leadership topics which generated conversation and stimulated discussion increased the effectiveness of the program. The formal approach of bringing a defined group of pre-selected individuals together and strengthen the entire institution with that combined knowledge and power was phenomenal!”
