Faculty/Staff Nomination Form

*Success in the VALUE program relies heavily on the two Advanced Leadership Labs, which are courses presented in a seminar format. The peer-to-peer interaction associated with the Advanced Leadership Labs not only reinforces the skills of collaboration and operations in organizations but also allows students to engage with each other on both an academic and personal level as you progress through the program. If you are an online student at FHSU, you must be willing to attend class, via Skype or other web conference service, Wednesdays from 1:30 - 4 pm Central Time, on a weekly basis throughout the fall and spring semesters of the program. Individual arrangements should be discussed with the instructor for instances in which you are unable to attend class.

**Only 10-15 students are selected for the VALUE program each year.
