The Goff Strategic Leadership Center offers three key ways for undergraduates to engage and strengthen their strategic leadership potential. We invite students from any major to participate in our scholarship opportunities, mentorship program, or courses.
Courses that focus on the Six Principles of Strategic Leadership are developed in partnership with, and offered through, the Department of Entrepreneurship & Strategy. Undergraduates enrolled in these courses learn self-awareness, personal agility, and how to deliver results with strong personal ownership. This foundation of skills, detailed as the Core of a Strategic Leader, will aid in future success as students move from their education into the workforce. Students from any major on campus are encouraged to participate in our courses and apply for our scholarships.
We are excited to introduce a one-term, project-based course for the 2020-2021 academic year. Goff Trailblazers is open to students with any experience or skill level with a minimum 2.8 GPA. University of Utah students from any college and major are encouraged to apply. Those who are juniors or seniors during the term in which they participate will be given preference. Students selected will receive a $1000 scholarship award for the semester they participate.
The well-established, prestigious two-term Goff Scholars program is reserved for students with a minimum 3.5 GPA. The selection process reflects the rigorous and competitive nature of the course. University of Utah students from any college and major are encouraged to apply and must be junior or senior level during the terms they participate in the program. Students selected to participate will receive a $1000 scholarship award per semester.
Undergraduates can seek individual coaching from experienced business leaders, participate in group learning activities, or access as-needed learning materials. We offer self-guided, short term, and long term opportunities for learning and development.
We believe in the radically empowering assumption that you can unlock your potential as a strategic leader regardless of your position level in an organization. Join our program to learn how to navigate formal and informal relationships, influence without authority, shape decisions, and drive valuable results.
In partnership with the Goff Strategic Leadership Center, the newly conceived student-centered Hope Corps will provide support for small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. The experience of serving in this unique program will also benefit Undergraduate Eccles students as they gain valuable internship and real-world work experience, apply their existing skills in business management, and expand their understanding of critical principles of Strategic Leadership.
