Leadership Programs

The mission of Leadership Program Office is to develop the leadership ability in IMDC students. Prepare them to take leadership roles in their professional as well as personal life. To develop self-confidence, communication skills and decision making skills by exposing them to different leadership programmes, holding leadership positions and interacting with leaders of today. Leadership Programs will help IMDC students through all stages of their leadership development. It will be done through utilizing the Leadership Identity

Development Model. When students arrive at IMDC, they will begin their journey in leadership development. They will be EMERGING through being a part of programmes designed to help them learn more about themselves, connect them with student leader mentors and get them started off in the right direction with leadership. They then continue their leadership development through EXPLORING student organizations and involvement opportunities that IMDC has to offer. Soon they will be EXPERIENCING as they will find the groups that fit them best, they will work with others towards a goal, and they will run for an officer/committee position.

As graduation approaches, they will be ENRICHING others and their organizations by being able to see leadership as a shared process, developing younger leaders in their organizations and mentoring them, and seeing the big picture of how their organization can work with other organizations to collaborate towards a shared purpose

Our leadership development programs are a combination of experiential learning opportunities, skill development, and self - assessment programs. We believe that once a student leader understands and knows themselves and their leadership style, they then have the potential to exert great influence on their organizations, work environments, and future communities while learning about themselves, they'll also boost their ability to succeed academically. On top of that, involvement will help them connect with lifetime friends, develop new skills and prepare themselves for the real world. Our mission is to enrich the student experience and promote lifelong learning by fostering an inclusive community that will empower students to lead and serve through meaningful involvement.

Students at IMDC take a full part in a wide variety of recreational activities, many of which are organized by the students in coordination with student life department.
