Honors Community to Focus on Leadership

Fort Wayne, Ind. – Indiana Tech will debut a new living, learning community focused on leadership and career development in fall 2010 at the Fort Wayne campus.

The Honors Community blends the university’s commitments to relationship-based education and leadership development by offering a select group of 24 incoming freshman a unique experience in living, learning and leading together. The students chosen for The Honors Community will be those who have demonstrated leadership potential.

Members of The Honors Community will have the opportunity to:

  • Enroll in courses focused on leadership and career development and designed for high-achieving freshmen
  • Live with other members of The Honors Community in apartment-style campus housing typically reserved for upperclassmen
  • Assess their personal leadership styles while learning from campus and community leaders about the importance of leadership in their professions
  • Participate in activities such as:
    • Breakfast with Dr. Arthur Snyder, president of Indiana Tech
    • Business ethics luncheons with area executives
    • Trips to local cultural events
    • Community volunteer projects
  • Plan and organize activities for other students on campus
  • Serve as career peer mentors for area middle school students

“Our degree programs are already very focused on providing the knowledge and skills needed for career success, but The Honors Community will emphasize the leadership skills that are vital for today’s job market,” said Cindy Verduce, director of Indiana Tech’s Career Planning and Development Center. “These students will have opportunities to distinguish themselves as campus and community leaders.”

Members of The Honors Community will be selected based on high school GPA, SAT or ACT scores, leadership experience, recommendations, and an essay on why they would like to participate in The Honors Community.
