SELECTION AND PARTICIPATION
Participants will be nominated by their teammates and coaching staffs, with one to three student athletes invited per athletic program. Participants will be expected to attend and actively participate in every session, remain in good academic and social standing at the college, and complete the final project. Graduates will be honored annually at the end of year Athletics Awards Ceremony. Head coaches will receive parallel trainings throughout the year.
FINAL PROJECT—LIVING JOURNAL
In the Spring 2019 semester, graduating track & field captain Taylor Gunter proposed a framework for a Living Journal that chronicles the experiences, lessons, and reflections of all team captains. In collaboration with their current team captains, Gopher Leadership Program participants will create entries that combine reflective accounts with individual and program aspirations.
