The Leadership Institute is a character-driven learning experience that further develops students’ leadership skills and values. Through conversations with current leaders in politics, the military, education, business and law, students will explore their personal values and ethics to learn how to be leaders with a positive impact in their own communities.

His naval service took him all over the world, including assignments on an aircraft carrier and a destroyer. His final job on active duty was at the Pentagon in the Navy’s Office of Legislative Affairs. Throughout his Navy career, but especially as a senior officer, Joe’s favorite part of every tour of duty was teaching, mentoring, and leading young junior officers and enlisted sailors.
