Leading through Learning

The Shelton Leadership Center serves NC State University by offering values-based leadership development designed to help students find direction and achieve success. Our program areas for students at NC State include academic courses and leadership minors, the Shelton National Scholarship Program, and the Chancellor’s Leadership Development Program.  Every program provides research-driven and interactive values-based leadership development content that is delivered through training, events, and for-credit courses.
