According to a recent report from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), "Employers considering new college graduates for job openings are looking for leaders who can work as part of a team and communicate effectively." By participating in the McDonough Leadership Program, McDonough Scholars develop the top attributes cited in NACE's report (Figure 1; right). Our students are always looking for ways to learn and grow as leaders. Here are some recent examples from the Marietta College website and other sources:
