The Leadership in Scholarship program is an enhancement to the Johnson & Wales University Honors Program that has been piloted at our Denver Campus for the last three years. It upgrades a cross-disciplinary student honors experience by adding an orientation program, tailored on-campus services, and a living and learning community to the system-wide honors program. It is housed in the Community Leadership Institute, a co-curricular department that adds value to a student’s experience by providing leadership and community service opportunities for every student on campus via leadership studies courses, service learning, a visiting faculty program and a selective leadership development experience.
