Sleight Leadership Fellows Program
A cold day in a hot town: 2011 Sleight Leadership Fellows in Detroit.
The Sleight Leadership Fellows Program provides an intense leadership skills enhancement experience for Albion College sophomores. The program consists of a five-day, in-residence program that immerses students in cutting-edge leadership models and experiences through classwork, hands-on learning, and small work-group projects. The Sleight Program provides a curricular component to leadership training at Albion College with the specific intent of enhancing personal skills. The benefit, however, reaches beyond the participants as Sleight Fellows share their skills with their peers, in and out of the classroom.
The theme of each year's Sleight Leadership Fellows Program will reflect a different topic. The program for 2009 was titled "Leadership in a Challenging Environment." For 2012, the program focused on urban redevelopment by using Detroit as a natural learning laboratory. The program was entitled "Leadership and the Re-emergence of Detroit."
