ANGOLA, Ind. (February 16, 2015) – Trine University’s Lou Holtz Leadership Institute will kick off its new session next month with a lecture from coach Holtz himself.
Legendary football coach, ESPN analyst and Trine University trustee Lou Holtz put his name and leadership style on the Lou Holtz Master of Science in Leadership program, which focuses on Holtz’s Three Rules: Do right, do the best you can and show people you care.
Holtz will visit Trine University’s main campus in Angola on March 27 to kick off the spring cohort of the Lou Holtz Leadership Institute. Following the launch, courses will be seated in Fort Wayne with an online component to complement the course offerings.
“It’s rewarding and humbling to be a part of this community-based leadership program,” Holtz said. “I’m confident the institute that carries my name will be grounded in the same high standards Trine applies to all programs.”
Centered on the teachings of Holtz, courses include areas of management and leadership that reflect upon human relations, engagement, communication and problem-solving. The goal is to provide a broader opportunity to gain real world skills in the form of corporate training and certificate programs, in shaping innovation networks, inspiring an innovative culture and managing innovation.
The Lou Holtz Leadership Institute engages employees, community corporations, faculty and students in educational outreach programs to build an innovative culture and introduce best practices to spur community innovation. Live and online programs fuse the knowledge, spirit and skill sets desired of innovative leaders.
