Voss Advanced Leadership Undergraduate Experience

The Voss Advanced Leadership Undergraduate Experience (VALUE) is designed to develop the most promising undergraduates into powerful agents for good, following their educational experience at Fort Hays State University. The VALUE program is a year-long curricular and co-curricular experience for upper-division students. Students will be challenged to embrace and dedicate themselves to deeper individual development. The exclusive learning objectives of the VALUE program which serve as a framework are:

  • Operations- To be successful in the leadership process, leaders must be able to move from ideas and concepts to action. They must be able to implement, execute, and transform a vision into reality. Leaders and followers must simply "make it happen."
  • Collaboration- Participants in the leadership process must be able to work in a team environment to be successful. Leadership must be able to exercise collaborative skills where all players are involved in the decision-making and implementation phases.

Learn more about opportunities to support VALUE.

The Voss Family

The VALUE program is made possible through a generous gift to the Department of Leadership Studies from the family of Omer G. Voss, a valuable supporter of leadership education. Learn more about Omer G. Voss and his legacy.
