A special update from Assistant Director of Athletics Compliance & Student Success, Mike Teague.
We believe learning happens best in the context of relationship. Our faculty spend countless hours—both inside and outside the classroom—to serve as professor-mentors, not just teachers. Through close, coaching relationships, you’ll go beyond the classroom, getting not only the knowledge you need but also the wisdom to apply what you’re learning in practical ways.
I am so grateful to be a part of the Vanguard community, especially in the cohort for my particular program.
We all support each other through celebrations and struggles, because we all want to see each other succeed. I've learned what behaviors separate a good leader from a strong leader, and how I can apply those behaviors in my own day-to-day activities. If you express to your professors that you want more learning experience than what happens in the classroom, they will find a way to make it happen. I think that was one of the best academic decisions I've ever made, because it opened more opportunities for me than I could imagine.
I appreciate the relationship with my professors because they're mentors who take the time to be there for us.
It's a great program for anyone. You don't have to be in leadership to be in this program. Everyone has influence in life no matter where you're at. There are principles and life applications that can help you in whatever setting you're in.
