The Courageous Leadership Institute is a 4-day program comprised of asynchronous learning and 12 hours of synchronous keynote speakers, small group discussion, and facilitated reflection. This innovative, hybrid institute will expose participants to some of William & Mary’s most distinguished William & Mary alumni across education, public policy, and nonprofits. And, through moderated discussions with William & Mary students and alums, help participants identify and refine their values and rumble with vulnerability on the road to becoming more compassionate and courageous leaders. Students who complete the program will receive a certificate of completion from William & Mary’s Courageous Leadership Institute, and emerge better equipped to step into their values, especially when it is hard.
