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.

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
