Redefine Leadership

What does it mean to lead?

At Simmons, we don't believe in a "one-size-fits-all" definition of leadership. We encourage our students to develop their unique leadership potential and style. 

You'll explore the concept of leadership in depth during your time at Simmons, starting with your first year Leadership Course. Options like "How to Lead Quietly in a World that Celebrates Extroversion" and "Leadership for Future Healthcare Professionals" prove there are ways to lead that fit every personality and career path. And you'll hear a wide range of distinguished speakers discuss their own paths through the Friars Leaders Program
