Department of Leadership and American Studies

After Graduation

  • One of the most meaningful things I learned at CNU was the importance of leading a life of significance in service of others. My studies equipped me with the knowledge, skills and confidence to make a positive impact. Whether it’s leading research teams in conflict zones, or briefing senior government officials, the principles of transformational leadership have stuck with me and continue to guide my development.

  • All of a sudden leadership became the essence of everything for me. Once I realized the importance of the material I was learning and began applying it in my everyday life, I became not only a better leader, but also a better follower.
