Leadership Day - October 23, 2013

Formerly known as Heroism Day

In support of strategic commitments to service learning and development of principled leaders, The Citadel will hold its third annual Leadership Day (formerly named Heroism Day) October 23, 2013. On this day there will be no regularly scheduled undergraduate day classes or required formations other than the first and last of the day. All member of the SC Corps of Cadets will enroll and participate in an approved Leadership Day activity. Day students living off campus and graduate students may also participate in the event.

All freshmen will participate in the SHARE program outreach to Innovation Zone Schools and all Juniors will participate in the Junior Ethics Enrichment Experience (JEEE) on this day. Seniors and sophomores have selected one of many approved service, training, and/or service team leadership experiences throughout the city.

All activities on Leadership Day are designed to engage students in a meaningful educational and developmental process outside the classroom: learning through service in the community, interacting with diverse populations, training for ethical and skilled leadership, serving as a trained leader for service teams, and/or preparing for service and leadership in one’s discipline. Training, accountability, and evaluation of impact (on those served and those serving) was integrated into all approved activities.

The statistics from last year’s Leadership Day can be viewed below.
