President’s Student Leadership Program announces first cohort of students

Students from 18 disciplines selected to participate in unique leadership program

April 11, 2019 — 

Twenty-seven successful candidates from across Manitoba have been selected to participate in the first cohort of the President’s Student Leadership Program.

Students from over 20 faculties and schools across the University of Manitoba, Red River College, University of Winnipeg and University College of the North applied to participate in the first year of the program. The 27 students who will participate in the inaugural year represent 18 different disciplines and all four levels of postgraduate study: diploma (3), bachelor’s (13), master’s (7), and PhD (4). Each applicant was required to demonstrate strong leadership experience, commitment and impact.

“We are thrilled with the quality of applicants and the range of applications we received for this first year of the President’s Program,” says Suzanne Gagnon, Canada Life Chair in Leadership Education and Director of the new Institute for Leadership Development at the University of Manitoba. “We are excited to see the diversity in this group, critically important to today’s leadership.”

“We look forward to working with these leaders and are very pleased to welcome them to our first year. They will help us to build the program for the future. Together we will study leadership as building bridges across communities, interests and disciplines, learning from top leaders’ challenges and opportunities in society, and from the diversity and experience in the group,” explains Gagnon.

The President’s Student Leadership Program is unique in Canada and is strategically important for Manitoba’s business community and economy, in that it aims to develop future leaders in various sectors for the province. This first cohort of the program will begin in June 2019.
