Harry T. Wilks Leadership Institute at Miami University

The Harry T. Wilks Leadership Insitute at Miami University is very intriguing.  The misson of the Institute “is to strive to ensure that Miami’s students graduate with the highest ethical standards, ready and eager to serve their communities, their nation, and their world. The Institute will strive to ensure that Miami University is at the forefront nationally in leadership education.”  The first part of the mission statement is important, I resonate with it and so do many other institutions of higher education.  The second sentence is intriguing to me.  This is intriguing because they are explicitly interested in helping Miami University being a leader in “leadership education.”  You hear many colleges and universities generally speaking of the importance of leadership but not nearly as specifically as Miami University does through this Institute.  There are also good resources available on their website: http://www.units.muohio.edu/saf/wilks/
