Every year, the McDonough Center takes a group of students to a different part of the world to study an aspect of leadership through different cultural lenses. This year, Dr. David Brown from the Biology Department and Dr. Robert McManus from the McDonough Center (pictured above, left to right) led a group to Thailand and Cambodia to study the traditions, religion, and history of Southeast Asia and a Buddhist approach to leadership.
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:
► Ian Luttrell '18 (Sports Management Major; Minor in Leadership Studies) - reflects on what initially drew him to Marietta College.
► Rosey Raths '18 (Advertising/Public Relations Major; Certificate in Leadership Studies) - named a McCoy Scholar. The award includes tuition, fees, room, board and a computer, and is renewable for four years.
► Brian Raiff '17 (Petroleum Engineering Major; Engineering Leadership Certificate) - selected as a McCoy Scholar.
