“Preparing Undergraduate Leaders – A Student Experience”

PULSE is designed to provide practical leadership skills in an environment where students can learn, not only about themselves, but about what leadership means to them. There are, undeniably, certain sets of words that tend to accompany the concept of leading. Words like ‘ambitious,’ ‘outgoing,’ and phrases such as ‘big personality’ have signaled to many that leadership is not for everyone.

Through participation in the program, our hope is for students to realize that leadership is an expression of self and a means of serving, inspiring, and empowering others. Leadership can come from the most unexpected places or the most unlikely of people. We want our students to build their own brand of leadership and apply it throughout all areas of their life.

Students spend two days focusing on the three core values of PULSE – Collaboration, Communication, and Reflection. We believe that these three principals are key to understanding ourselves and our own personal leadership styles.

PULSE is a collaborative effort made possible by the leadership of the Student Union and the Ole Miss Women’s Council for Philanthropy.
