BROCKPORT, NY—The Student Leadership Development Program at The College at Brockport, State University of New York, has received a national award. The program has been recognized by NASPA, a national organization for student affairs administrators in higher education, with a Student Leadership Program Knowledge Community Spotlight Series award. The Leadership Development Program won in the “Theory to Practice” category.
The Student Leadership Program Knowledge Community recognizes the contributions of members who are transforming higher education through outstanding and innovative leadership programs and services. Created in 2009, Brockport’s Student Leadership Development Program provides all students with the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally. The program features four levels: Green Certificate (focused on individual values such as consciousness of self, congruence, and commitment), Gold Certificate (focused on group values such as collaboration and common purpose), Presidential Certificate (focused on societal values such as citizenship), and a Capstone Certificate (focused on societal change).
John Dugan, the principal researchers for the prestigious Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership (MSL), believes Brockport’s Student Leadership Development Program to be worthy of such recognition.
“I continue to be impressed with the efforts of The College at Brockport to intentionally bridge theory, research, and practice in the design and delivery of their leadership development programs,” Dugan says. “I am proud to endorse their work.”
