Teamwork and Leadership

What do teamwork and leadership have to do with your ELEVATE experience at Moravian? In a word: everything

That’s why regardless of your area of study, teamwork and leadership will be part of your core curriculum. Courses, such as your First-Year Seminar, will incorporate collaborative work and leadership skill development in order to explore teamwork in a liberal arts context and reflect the nature of the work you’ll be asked to do in real-world settings.

RISE to the Occasion

Take your teamwork and leadership skills to the next level through RISE, an optional add-on to your ELEVATE experience that focuses on realizing your potential to transform communities and the world. This four-phase experience begins as you get involved in campus organizations during your first year and continues with three partial unit courses (adding up to a full elective unit) that explore your own teamwork and leadership experiences. Through RISE, you will learn to Reflect on your leadership experience and to approach teamwork and leadership with Integrity, while you work on Skill-building through ELEVATE.
