  • Self-understanding
  • Courage to step outside their comfort zone
  • Cooperation with peers
  • Personal growth
  • Authentic leadership
  • Community Engagement
  • The true Mountaineer way!

  • Possess the confidence to lead on the WVU campus and beyond
  • Look at the greater environment with a better sense of diversity
  • Take on the role of a leader at WVU, in the community, and after their time as a WVU student so that they can lead (be a part of) change
