The Armor Leadership Academy seeks to transform the lives of our students by providing a comprehensive leadership development, training and education. Armor will work collaboratively with all University offices and community partners to enhance the leadership skills of our students, inside and outside of the classroom. Through the facilitation of co-curricular learning, culturally responsive teaching and skills development, we seek to develop visionary student leaders who will be prepared for a complex ever changing society.
In conjunction with the Orientation to College Program, The Level Up Leaders Program, as part of the Armor Leadership Academy will be integrated into the curriculum. In congruence with the thematic sections of the courses, workshops were designed to incorporate lessons and extend the learning beyond the classroom.
The Armor Leadership Academy features three tiers of enrollment. Students must attend a designated number of workshops, programs and events to matriculate through the program. Year one, features the Level Up Leaders Program. The Gold Leadership program is the next tier which is geared towards more emerging leaders looking to continue their development within the program. The Society is the final tier, for the most established student leaders. This program is application based and will feature the most skilled and trained leaders who have completed the previous tiers.
