You benefit by developing an expanded worldview that opens the door to smarter decisions and creative solutions. And in any of our programs, you can expect an experience that’s engaging, interactive and unforgettable.

The Art of the Creative Leader

Open to the public, this highly experiential workshop series for professionals explores five key creative leadership attributes through the intersection of the arts and leadership development. These learning experiences are designed and taught by artists, in collaboration with experts in education, business and leadership development. Participants are presented with unique exercises that allow for new ways of understanding these concepts and the know-how necessary to reflect, practice and connect them to the real world. This project is in collaboration with Christine Harris, creativity expert and CEO of Christine Harris Connections, a consultancy firm dedicated to supporting and inspiring individual and community creativity.

Summer Leadership Institute

This intensive, three-day residential Summer Leadership Institute for students brings together a diverse group of female college students from around the state to learn about women’s leadership and civic participation from accomplished women leaders. Interactive workshops and the residential facet create a powerful immersive experience.

College Campus Explorers Youth Initiative

In partnership with the Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast, this annual youth program gives young women the chance to earn a badge and explore leadership opportunities through hands-on projects involving art/ art therapy, science, business etiquette and public speaking with the MMU faculty all during a Friday night pizza party on the Mount Mary campus! A true college life experience!
