Welcome Cohort 28 to the Leadership Program!

The McDonough Center welcomed 80 new students into the McDonough Leadership Program this fall. This group is the 28th cohort to participate in the program since 1987. Cohort 28 participated in the EXCEL (Experience Leadership and Civic Engagement) Workshop (August 17-21, 2014), a five-day event designed to introduce the new students to the philosophy and expectations of the leadership program. Upper-class leadership students organized and implemented the workshop, which took place the week before classes began.
