MLDP Excellence for Fall 2019

Each term the Management Leadership Development Program provides students with the opportunity to reflect on their leadership experience and build the skills to be more effective leaders. At each session, participants are asked to nominate their peers for excellence. When nominating, students are asked to explain why their nominees made their experience in MLDP more beneficial and how their nominees provided an excellent example of leadership during the program. At the end of the term, students must have perfect attendance and be nominated multiple times, by multiple peers to complete the program with excellence. Below are the collaborated comments about those who completed the Management and Leadership Development Program with excellence in Fall 2019. We thank them for their effort and commitment to the program. Congratulations!

Tuck Mentors program seeks to improve student relationships

Written by Eliza Gallant for The Dartmouth

While the gulf between graduate and undergraduate students at Dartmouth can sometimes appear vast, the Tuck Mentors program at the Tuck School of Business — founded as the Dartmouth Professional Insight Network three years ago by Tuck students — aims to create a better relationship between Tuck and undergraduate students.

Sydney Schuit Tu’20, a leader and mentor for the club, said that Tuck students have valuable experiences which make them excellent mentors to undergraduates. “Tuck students have real-world business experiences and undergrads tend to be searching for what they want to be when they grow up,” Schuit said. “Tuck Mentors is a nice opportunity to bring the two campuses together.”

Celebrating Ten Years of MLDP

The Rockefeller Center is honored to announce the 10-year anniversary of the Management and Leadership Development Program, fondly known to many as MLDP. What began as a pilot program in 2009, has impacted the lives of over 1000 leaders from the Dartmouth undergraduate and alumni community. MLDP is a one-term program designed for sophomore, junior, and senior undergraduates from any major who are looking to expand and develop their leadership in theory and in practice. Students meet weekly to engage with a variety of guest speakers and hands-on learning in core management and leadership skills.

When Andrew Samwick took over as Director of the Rockefeller Center in 2004, the co-curricular offerings that existed at the Center consisted of a few small programs. He sought to expand leadership programming dramatically. With a five million dollar gift to start such programming from Fritz Corrigan ’53 and Glenda Corrigan, MLDP got its start.
