Lead Colorado School of Mines

Leadership at Mines is built on a foundation of intentionality and collaboration with great care taken to develop the whole student and their ability to be thoughtful, self-aware visionaries in the engineering and applied science fields. We challenge students to explore their leadership potential as they develop effective methods for communication and problem solving through their co-curricular involvements and through balance in their educational pursuits. Facilitated by a range of programs, specifically designed for Mines students, we encourage them to test and practice the tenets of leadership; inspiring those around them, striving for excellence in their personal lives, their professions and as contributing citizens in their communities.
