“Learn to Serve” – The Sophomore Experience
In the fall of the sophomore year, the Caldwell Fellows sophomore seminar grounds students in their foundational work in leadership development. The three-credit, honors course focuses on developing the self-aware leader grounded in Robert Greenleaf’s philosophy of servant leadership. Guided by one-on-one work with a personal executive coach, students write a unique Philosophy of Leadership and create a Personal Development Plan. For the service-learning portion of the seminar, Caldwell Fellows select a focal point for their leadership and service with one of the program’s community service partners. Students are mentored in their service-learning by upper-class Fellows. A global or undergraduate research experience are encouraged experiences for the summer after the sophomore year.
