Leadership Development Program at NTHU
Leadership Development Program at NTHU is a project that aims to cultivate the leadership skills and mindset of students at the university. The project was initially sponsored by Chinese American entrepreneur Mr. Sandy Chau who grew up in an impoverished environment and wished to give back to society. He urges the students in the program to pay it forward and contribute to the community. NTHU and 20 alumni now sponsor the program.
We aim to train students with leadership attributes: Visionary, Articulate, Disciplined, Empathetic, and Responsible. The program adopts the "practice by doing" and "help others" pedagogy paradigm based on the learning pyramid. Students will take nine elective credits over three years and conduct three projects (class, group, individual). They are led to reflect on followership and leadership to spike their understanding of leadership.
