Staley School of Leadership Studies


The Snyder Leadership Legacy Fellows is a year-long program for students entering into their final year at Kansas State University. Up to 40 students are selected to participate in the program, which teaches them about leadership, exposes them to a variety of mentors and fosters their transition from student to professional, where they can put their leadership skills to use. Students will attend a two-day retreat on May 23rd and 24th, 2019 to begin the fellowship year. 

The Snyder Leadership Legacy Fellows program will:

* Provide a leadership development opportunity rooted in Coach Snyder's 16 Goals for Success, to top students of Kansas State University.

* Purposefully connect students to community and business leaders, successful athletes and scholars along with peers who all share an interest in exercising leadership in their lives.

* Raise the visibility, importance, and expectations of leadership in action, during and after a student's formal education.

* Elevate students' passion for service, encouraging and connecting them with resources capable of transforming visions into actions that make a difference in the world in which they live.

The Snyder Fellows program extends to students the opportunity for personal and professional development based on Coach Snyder’s 16 Goals for Success. These 16 goals have been embraced by many as guiding principles for success in life, family, career, and community. The ultimate goal of the program is to develop change agents on campus, in the community, throughout the state and beyond. The program strives to prepare students for the transition from college and for engagement as lifelong leaders.
