Leadership Philosophy

The Regional Office of Student Activities & Orientation (ROSA) believes that everyone has the capacity to be a leader. This is the ability to share, explain, and execute a vision towards a desired outcome. These interactions happen on a daily basis at the collegiate level. This capacity can be exercised in formal, position-based ways or more informal functions.

Our core purpose is to develop cross-cultural and transformational leadership in Miami University Regional  students to ensure participants are prepared and inspired to lead beyond the university.

To accomplish our core purpose, we utilize two key frameworks to shape our work: Domains of Student Development & Fundamental Tenets of Leadership Development.

Domains of Student Development

To provide structure to developmental initiatives, the Leadership Co-Curricular Certificate programs within five domains of development. These five domains are critical in holistic student development.

  • Knowledge
  • Relationships
  • Ethics
  • Well-Being
  • Service

Fundamental Tenets of Leadership Development

The Leadership Co-Curricular Certificate also utilizes four tenets of leadership development that augment the five domains. As the five domains are critical in holistic student development, the four tenets are more specifically aligned with leadership development.

  • Growth and Authenticity
  • Character and Responsibility
  • Innovation and Vision
  • Empowerment and Engagement
