Falcon Leadership Institute


The Falcon Leadership Institute (FLI)

 develops emerging leaders with the confidence, ability, and passion to be active and engaged leaders in their communities.  Through the one-semester leadership development course, FLI participants have the opportunity to attend a weekend leadership retreat, plan and implement a service project, and gain invaluable leadership experiences and insights during their first semester at BGSU.  

FLI's Mission:

The Center for Leadership’s Falcon Leadership Institute develops self-aware leaders who have the skills to build professional networks and create personal connections within their cohort and throughout campus. Additionally, FLI helps each student develop skills most sought after by future employers, including decision making, communication, and ability to work in a team structure. Guided by the ideals of servant leadership, students participate in service-learning and leadership projects that enhance the community. Participants begin earning the BGSU Leadership Certificate by learning the skills and competencies necessary for a successful life and career.
