The Best Leaders are the Best Learners

According to research by Kouzes & Posner (The Truth About Leadership, 2010) the best leaders really are the best learners.  We are committed to equipping every student to be successful in the classroom and as a leader on our campus and in the world.  Every freshman student at ETBU takes learning and leading (LEAD 1111) as a part of our commitment to empowering you as a leader.

Students in Learning and Leading are equipped to:

  • Serve as Christian leaders in the community
  • Build the character necessary for credibility in leadership
  • Enhance their skills for leadership
