President’s Leadership Institute
The President’s Leadership Institute was established to develop top leadership in Olivet’s students, as well as enable them to become the principal professional and community leaders of the future.
The college partnered with Today’s Leader, a management consulting company that specializes in business coaching and professional development, to design a program catered specifically to Olivet students. The institute includes a variety of programs and initiatives to promote leadership, identify leadership talent, and develop effective and successful leadership qualities and skills in Olivet College students.
Successful institute graduates are designated as “fellows” of the President’s Leadership Institute, and are invited to remain engaged in the activities of PLI in support of future student leadership development, both while completing their studies at Olivet College and as successful alumni engaged in professional and community leadership roles.
Students are nominated for membership by their professors, and selected for the program based on academic excellence and exemplifying leadership on campus.
