Students at Albany Technical College have a chance to be better leaders in school and in life after graduation.

ATC President Dr. Anthony Parker launched the Leadership Institute for students with no more than 18 credit hours.

"The new leadership institute will encourage and support our students as they assume leadership roles in our community, state, and nation," Parker said. "The Institute will also prepare our students for successful transitions to other institutions and will render rewards that will last a lifetime."

It’s a program to help commuter students use and develop unique skills and become more involved. They’ll be involved in workshops, campus life events, community service and more.

“I want to be a leader in life,” Dartavies Scott, student, said. “I don’t want people to look at me like I’m an outsider person. Basically, I want to be that name. A big name in this world.”

The program is spread throughout their academic career at ATC so students can focus on school, work or any other obligations.

Students must be currently enrolled in at least six credit hours. Students need to complete the application during the first week of school.

Students interested in applying should contact the Office of Student Life inside the Logistics Education Center, room 102.
