Students Graduate from University of Iowa Career Leadership Academy

The University of Iowa Pomerantz Career Center graduated its second class from the Career Leadership Academy in ceremonies on April 17 at the Iowa Memorial Union in Iowa City.

The Career Leadership Academy is a four-semester academic program that helps UI undergraduates develop their leadership skills. The program is divided into four phases each semester: The Self-Aware Leader, The Leader Who Understands Others, The Leader Who Interacts with Others, and The Leader About to Engage the World.

The goal of the program is to prepare UI undergraduates to become successful professionals after college. Within the Career Leadership Academy, there are opportunities for students to network with professionals, engage in teambuilding workshops, practice resume and cover letter writing, learn effective communication skills, attend etiquette dinners, lead service projects, and explore a variety of career search tools.

The Marvin Pomerantz Leadership Award was presented to Amanda Crane, a senior from Council Bluffs. The award is presented to one or more outstanding CLA graduates each semester in honor of Pomerantz for his dedication to the University and its students.
