The Leadership FMU Program is offered as a co-curricular hybrid (classroom and online) leadership program designed to give students an opportunity to experience leadership from a comprehensive perspective.  The mission of the program is to enhance leadership skills by providing strategies, tools, and conceptual theories to increase knowledge and promote the effective application.  Upon completing the program, students are recognized for their commitment and often represent the University in various capacities.
