Leadership Opportunities

We offer opportunities for growth and responsibility that you won’t find anywhere else.

Willumstad Leadership Scholars Program

A highly selective leadership program that will give top students a winning edge. The Willumstad Leadership Scholars Program will offer seniors two semesters of business-specific experiential learning to prepare them to take the lead in public- and private-sector careers.

  • “Working alongside five extremely talented individuals to create an initiative to improve student life on campus has been an incredible experience. The Leadership Scholars program fosters a creative atmosphere where students are encouraged to think differently. This program has played a pivotal role in my growth as a future professional, by providing me with the necessary tools to be successful in my career aspirations.”

    Chelsea Abreu ‘19
    BBA in Marketing

The program provides opportunities for the students to work as a team under the guidance of a faculty member on a real project for Adelphi. In the fall semester, students participate in leadership development opportunities and identify their team project in consultation with executive leadership from the university. During the spring semester, most of the students’ efforts are on their team project, which is an “initiative for Adelphi”.

The inaugural team of Willumstad Leadership Scholars presented their proposal to Robert. B. Willumstad in May 2019.
