Rockefeller Leadership Fellows
Rockefeller Leadership Fellows (RLF) is the capstone leadership program for seniors.
About the Program
Fellows are selected during their junior spring and begin the program as seniors the following academic year. As they take part in the workshops, dinner discussions, and team-building exercises, the Fellows gain a better understanding of the qualities and responsibilities expected of leaders and learn to adapt their own leadership styles to different situations. Fellows examine their skills, qualities, and attributes as leaders, and analyze how these influence teamwork and play out in their lives.
Through the study of various theories of leadership and experiential exercises, the program highlights key approaches to promoting teamwork and achieving goals. The program concludes with a look at leadership challenges both in a work environment and at a societal level, and with a study of how Fellows can strengthen their own effectiveness as leaders.
