Six top performing students will experience leadership and professional development during the fellow’s program
Fayetteville, N.C. - Fayetteville State University recently announced its Fall 2023 Chancellor’s Fellows Leadership Program recipients at the Board of Trustees September meeting.
The Chancellor’s Fellows Leadership Program is designed to prepare, empower, and promote elite scholars for remarkable lives of leadership and service to the local community, state, nation, and globally. As one of FSU’s most prestigious programs, the fellows will participate in an intensive executive leadership program that provides cultural enrichment opportunities, professional development, project management and implementation, meaningful community service and transformative personal growth. The six fellows will also receive a $3,000 scholarship.
“We are immensely proud to recognize these exceptional students. Our inaugural cohort of FSU Chancellor’s Fellows, individually, not only decided to ultimately enroll at Fayetteville State University, but they issued an unspoken charge to our faculty, staff and administration. That decision was to excel at the highest academic levels possible while enrolled at FSU. These six leader scholars have done that and more; therefore, it is our honor to showcase these outstanding student leaders in this fashion,” said Darrell T. Allison, Chancellor at FSU.
The recipients are:
Throughout the program, participants will work with a team of experienced leadership facilitators and coaches to develop their communication, self-awareness, professional adaptability, interdisciplinary teamwork, and leadership skills. Throughout the program, participants are expected to complete required activities, which include attending leadership retreats, dialoging with their cohort peers, and rendering community service projects.
Participants will also engage with city and county elected officials to track local issues of interest. The program offers emerging leaders the opportunity to participate in various activities that give the students the ability to practically apply what’s learned during matriculation.
Eligible students are those who maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher and must be a full-time undergraduate student seeking a bachelor’s degree at FSU. For more information on The Chancellor’s Fellows Leadership Program visit: www.uncfsu.edu.
