Through personalized educational and hands-on outreach programs for professionals, college students, and pre-college students, participants cultivate the personal and professional integrity that sparks inspiration—and transformation.

Championing values
for winning leadership

Leaders can be made. But it takes a solid foundation of essential values for a leader to realize individual potential—and influence others to achieve their best. This is values-based leadership, and it underpins every program within the Shelton Leadership Center.

“A values-based leader is one who is known for their character.”
– General Hugh Shelton
 

A vision realized

With a lifelong commitment to military and civil service that culminated in his becoming our nation’s 14th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Hugh Shelton knows what it means to lead with integrity. Following his retirement, General Shelton wanted to help nurture tomorrow’s leaders through a values-based leadership development program in association with his alma mater, North Carolina State University. So, in 2002, the Shelton Leadership Center was established.

As we reflect on #BlackHistoryMonth and our cornerstone values, we recognize that a diversity of experiences and backgrounds are key to our shared success. Thank you to leaders of @NCSUWomensCtr, @ncsuaacc, & Black Male Initiative who shared perspectives! youtu.be/StssC-itpyg

We had a packed last day in London! Half of us visited the @zsllondonzoo and got a behind the scenes tour from alumna Dr. Guthrie. Others visited @RCT Windsor Castle and then we wrapped at @TheLondonEye with gorgeous views. It has been a life changing and transformative week! pic.twitter.com/w5gVwIkHJx

Today we had the incredible opportunity to visit @UKParliament and meet Lord Chris Smith, MP for 22 yrs and the person responsible for making museums free for all. He was the first MP to come out as gay in 1984. It was a privilege and honor to spend time with him. #SheltonAbroad pic.twitter.com/gz3HAdZV9s
