Third year Fellows focus on becoming more effective change-makers. Ideally, leaders help organizations and communities to be more effective, address challenges, and/or innovate. Fellows will learn and practice strategies for change and become more aware of the impact of
power, privilege and systems on the change process.
Most students go abroad for at least a semester during the junior year.
- Seminars: Fellows will meet approximately twice a month to explore theories of change, develop change plans for the organizations they serve and reflect on their actual experiences with change.
- Junior Retreat: During the fall semester, juniors participate in an overnight retreat where they will explore the intersection of leadership, power and privelege.
- Change Plans: Each Fellow will analyze and issue facing a group they are engaged in and develop a plan to address that change.
- Presence Presentations: Each junior will have 5 minutes to authentically share his or her story as a way of helping the group to understand the range of motivations that drive behavior, and to help our group develop a stronger sense of community.
- Creativity Workshop with the McColl Center where participants engage in a half-day session where they exercise their creativity and explore how creativity plays into leadership and innovation.
- Individual Coaching: Chidsey Fellows will meet one-on-one with a member of the Leadership Development Team to reflect on their progress on their strategic plans and other topics of importance to the Chidsey Fellow.
- Observation and Feedback: Chidsey Fellows will be paired and asked to observe each other in action and share their feedback with their partner.
- Developing Others: Juniors have the option to participate on Leadership Development Teams.
