FLORENCE – Francis Marion University’s Leadership FMU program recently held its third graduation to recognize and celebrate student leadership.
University administrators, staff, students and others gathered as some of FMU’s student leaders were given certificates of completion for the program.
The purpose of the program is to enhance the leadership skills of FMU students by providing programs and services designed to increase knowledge of community development, ethical standards, professional and career development and civic responsibility.
Leadership FMU is a programmatic function of the Division of Student Affairs. An administrative board and the Leadership Advisory Board, is charged with the development of a series of programs and services for FMU students. The Leadership Advisory Board (LAB) is composed of faculty, students and staff who have an interest in enhancing leadership opportunities for students. Members of the LAB are selected by the Dean of Students and represent the university community.
