The Wolf Leadership Academy is a leadership and team captain workshop series, designed to complement classroom learning and prepare freshman and sophomore student-athletes to better serve and lead their teams. The program is a comprehensive leadership development program that aims to:

  • Identify and develop emerging leaders on athletic teams
  • Build a strong peer support network for aspiring leaders
  • Develop young student-athletes who support and learn from current team captains/leaders
  • Provide students with highly marketable leadership skills for a lifetime of success
  • Establish a strong and cooperative partnership with the coaching staff and athletic administration

Student-athletes involved in the Leadership Academy can expect to go through a series of workshops and lectures on topics related to leadership styles, conflict management/resolution, self and social awareness, and goal setting and assessment. Select graduates of the Leadership Academy will be invited to represent their team on the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC).
