The Evolving Leaders Program is designed for returning students to WSU who are looking to expand upon their leadership skills and abilities. This is a nine week program that will focus on creating well balanced leaders. Each participant will receive a copy of The Well-Balanced Leader by Ron Roberts. Participants will also be placed in small groups and will present on a chapter from the book to the larger group. In addition, each person will help with the planning of the Leadership Discovery Summit on November 13, 2015.
Applications for the 2016 program will be available August 22, 2016.

well as things I can do to be a better person."
"I enjoyed planning the Discovery Summit and this helped me work with other students and learn
