Now in its twenty-second year, the Leadership Discovery Program (LDP) educates and prepares Dartmouth students to become effective leaders and group members. The Leadership Discovery Program focuses on helping students to explore relationship-centered, ethical leadership. The program is open to a maximum of 36 members of the Class of '15. Participants are selected on the basis of submitted essays. The 6 sessions are held during spring term and are led by faculty members, administrators and undergraduates. ATTENDANCE AT THE RETREAT AND ALL WEEKLY SESSIONS IS MANDATORY.
Through participation in LDP, students will be able to:
"I hope the next class will be able to have the experience we have had. It was a great way to start the four years at Dartmouth off right." "I thought the program was excellent. It made me do some thinking about the way I perceive myself and my role in a group." "I would definitely recommend this program to future classes. It was a worthwhile learning experience in which I got to know many people that I would not have otherwise gotten to know."
If you have any questions about the program, please contact Minnie Slater either via email or phone at (603) 646-1656.
We are looking for students invested in learning more about leadership, with a willingness to reflect on and engage in the issues presented, and an interest in exploring the ethical dimensions of leadership. Students will be expected to participate in every session and to complete assigned readings. Previous participants have found that keeping a journal is also helpful. Please complete the on-line application by TBD for 2013 at 11:59 pm if you would like to be considered for the program. Late submissions will not be considered. If you prefer to submit a written application, you may return it to Minnie Slater, Collis 211C (HB 6217). Notifications of your acceptance status will be sent to your Dartmouth email on TBD for 2013.
