Hornet Leadership Program

 

 

The Hornet Leadership Program is funded by student equity monies and supports Fullerton College’s mission by advancing and empowering student learning and achievement through a guided pathway to leadership development.  Through this student leadership program, we will cover the fundamentals of leadership for emerging student leaders and continue to build upon the core foundation of leadership principles and framework for established student leaders.  Student leaders will become action-driven practitioners for the campus community, will “learn by doing,” and will model effective and dynamic leadership at Fullerton College. 

Upon completion of each level achieved in the Hornet Leadership Program, student leaders will reach outcomes that include, but are not limited to the following: effective communication, intellectual growth, interpersonal skills, social responsibility, and leadership development.

Hornet Leadership is centered on four areas, building upon the college’s core values of community, diversity, equity, excellence, growth, inclusivity, innovation, integrity, partnership, respect and responsibility:

  1. Global/community perspectives
  2. Ethics, values, & decision making
  3. Personal empowerment
  4. Interpersonal skills.

Each of these areas will help the student develop holistically as they challenge themselves through workshops, service hours, and other student leadership projects that are grounded in diversity, equity, inclusiveness, cultural immersion, social justice, enhanced resume and communication skills, and team dynamics.  Students are encouraged to participate in all approved leadership opportunities that will build their co-curricular transcript of student life and leadership.
