The Litton Leadership Scholars Program challenges undergraduates to lead not only on campus, but also in their future career fields. Supported by the Jerry Litton Family Memorial Foundation, this program focuses on developing the whole student to successfully navigate today’s challenges and tomorrow’s uncertainty through leadership education coursework, academic and field based mentorship, and impactful change.
It is an honor to be a Litton Leadership Scholar and with the honor comes an expectation of high achievement. Each cohort of Litton Leadership Scholars engages in a uniquely designed seminar course that capitalizes on the best that leadership education has to offer. Scholars interact with leadership, agriculture, and community experts. The academic and relational nature of the experience guides the Scholars to become impactful change agents in the University of Missouri community and beyond.
This year commemorates the 10th year of the Litton Leadership Scholars Program. Over 180 CAFNR undergraduates have already benefitted from the leadership development experience during the first decade of the program. To celebrate the 10th year the Program will be hosting the third installment of the Litton Lecture Series on October 14. The event will be held at Missouri Theatre and is open to the public.
