Student Leadership Institute

CBA 401A and CBA 401B

The Ukleja Center for Ethical Leadership launched its core educational program in 2006. The Student Leadership Institute is designed to equip students with the transformational power of ethical leadership. Class participants have an opportunity to explore ethical issues related to business, education, government, healthcare, and other professional fields. The class meets at Boeing, JetBlue, Target, and other local businesses. This program enables students to discover their core values and build a strong ethical foundation upon which future decisions can be made. Teamwork, community service, and networking with guest speakers are an integral part of the course, which is taught by Dr. Kathleen Lacey.

Community service projects have included:

  • Volunteering at a youth correctional facility to provide inmates with training on college applications and job interviewing skills upon their release
  • Volunteering at Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times by creating workshops for young cancer patients at this family camp
