The NYU Leadership Initiative is composed of three offices who work together to achieve our shared mission: Leadership Development, Office of Global Awards and the Social Entrepreneurship Program. We are united in our commitment to support students in developing three core leadership capacities. First, they need to gain the self-knowledge to work well with others. Second, we need to equip them with the skills to understand the complex dynamics underlying the challenges they seek to address and to articulate a clear vision of a better future. Finally, they need to be able to collaborate with others across differences to make measurable progress. To develop these capacities, we build cross-disciplinary communities where students engage in collaborative learning and action.
