iLEAD provides opportunities for Mount St. Mary's University students to strengthen their leadership skills. No matter where you are in your leadership journey, we are here to support you, to connect you to resources and programs on campus, and to offer leadership development through our own iLEAD programs, including Emerging Leaders and collaborations across campus. iLEAD sponsors monthly events such as speakers, discussions, films, panels, debates, and service opportunities.
The Emerging Leaders Series
The Emerging Leaders Series is a free, noncredited, 7-week leadership certification program that provides Mount students with the tools that they need to become successful leaders. The series uses Peter G. Northouse’s seminal work Introduction to Leadership, Concepts and Practices. Students are nominated by First-Year Symposium faculty and can participate in either the fall or spring semester. All other undergraduates may also apply using the ELS Application form.

Course simulations afford students opportunities at leadership development. Faculty and iLEAD staff work with undergraduate students who are selected and trained to participate in the simulation at a local or national venue. Course simulations include the Model Arab League, Model European Union and the Model Maryland Student Legislature.
Mount St. Mary’s University, along with over 40 other college and universities, celebrates Constitution Day in conjunction with The Jack Miller Center Constitution Day Initiative to help strengthen the awareness of the need for education in the American Constitutional tradition.
The program offers students a unique opportunity to engage in a civil discussion of the fundamental questions animating a free society with some of our nation’s leading scholars, jurists and officials.
