Alice Lloyd College … because leadership isn’t just a concept, it’s a way of life.
Alice Lloyd College pursues the ideal of comprehensive leadership development for its students. Knowledge is one component that develops leaders; therefore, this program contains aspects of leadership philosophy, citizenship, and cultural development, which build upon a strong traditional liberal arts academic program. The institution attempts to infuse leadership education initiatives into all aspects of the educational experience including: formal classroom instruction, activities that help students learn to cope with cultures outside of Appalachia, group learning activities, involvement in service to others, opportunities to explore their moral and ethical perspectives and activities that place them in leadership roles.
Academics, Student Services, and the Student Work Program have combined resources to create a formal leadership development program with the specific mission of preparing leaders to serve Appalachia. Alice Lloyd College’s liberal arts education prepares students to lead responsible, productive and creative lives in a dramatically changing world. The bachelor’s degree is designed to meet the challenges of life-long learning, namely the continuous development of skills, knowledge and understanding that are essential for employability and leadership.
