Scholars participating in the Leadership Development Center

Schreyer Scholars have the opportunity to participate in a comprehensive leadership skill development exercise modeled after programs used by companies and other organization’s to identify top talent in their workforce.

The program, the PNC Leadership Development Center (LDC), is a partnership between the SHC and Penn State’s Industrial/Organizational Psychology Program. It has been designed to introduce students to the challenges and decisions they will face as leaders in various organizations.

The program includes:

  • Simulated business activities designed to introduce students to challenges and decisions they will face as leaders in various organizations
  • Self-assessment exercises and reports
  • Interactive team discussions and problem solving
  • Feedback from assessment teams comprised of business executives, Scholar alumni, and IO faculty, who are familiar with hiring and employee leadership development
  • A personalized development program

The LDC runs programs twice a semester. The program is open to students from all majors. Due to the highly individualized nature of the program, registration is limited to 12 students per session.
