About the program:

  • As a participant, you will focus on developing yourself as a citizen leader;
  • MLDP is a co-curricular program made up of a series of sessions throughout the term led by expert guest speakers (
  • Topics in the past have ranged from developing group facilitation skills, public speaking, writing in the workplace, designing PowerPoint presentations with style and effectiveness, cultural sensitivity and awareness, and problem solving, decision making, and negotiation skills;
  • MLDP is highly interactive and experiential. Each session includes activities, exercises, and simulations;
  • MLDP includes students from all over campus studying any type of academic discipline (it's not just for Rocky students!) – this is a unique networking opportunity to interact on a regular basis with a diverse group of peers;
  • MLDP will strengthen your skills and improve your confidence for current on-campus involvement (including academics, projects, athletics, or Greek-life), upcoming internship opportunities, and more.


  • MLDP is a one-term commitment, and it is offered every Fall, Winter, and Spring term;
  • MLDP sessions occur on Tuesday evenings, and begin with group dinner discussions (dinner is served!) at 6:00pm, with our speaker-led presentations and group activities that go until 8:00pm. Each session is 2 hours each week. There may be a few exercises and readings to do outside of the sessions to help you prepare for our sessions and further develop your leadership skills.
