Leader in Me Certification for UNI Students
About the Project
The College of Education at the University of Northern Iowa has a reputation of preparing UNI students for success in teaching professions. To uphold this excellence, the College of Education is working to provide UNI students with opportunities to obtain Leader in Me certification. Through a two-day Leader in Me training, UNI students will learn to empower their future classrooms and become better candidates for teaching positions.
By contributing to this project, you can help add value to UNI students in that they will be trained professionally in valuable soft skills, which include leading and communicating. This project will add value to UNI students personally and, more importantly, to the schools they will serve. Support this project today to make an impact on the lives of UNI students.
Learn More About Leader in Me
Leader in Me focuses on Stephen Coveys' 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. In elementary schools, implementation of Leader in Me is foundational with students identifying their gifts and talents. As students progress through school, they learn how to apply the 7 Habits and develop as leaders in their classroom and school. Educators with the Leader in Me certification actively empower their students to become engaged learners and responsible leaders.
Preparing future educators at UNI with this certification will impact their ability to empower future generations. You can learn more about Leader in Me within Cedar Valley by visiting the Leader Valley website or by checking out a study by UNI and Hawkeye Community College showing the impact of implementation in Cedar Valley schools.
