Corporate partners, alumni, faculty, and students gathered on Friday, April 15, at Massey College for a luncheon to celebrate the success of the Troost Institute for Leadership Education in Engineering ( Troost ILead).
The first institute of its kind in Canada, Troost ILead offers courses, and co-curricular programs to help students excel in the work force. Students develop skills in four domains of leadership: self, team, organization and society. Troost ILead’s various courses and initiatives address each of these domains, equipping students with the skills to lead change to build a better world.
Attendee David Colcleugh (ChemE 5T9, MASc 6T0, PhD 6T2), a professor at Troost ILead, has seen first-hand the positive impact that leadership skills can have at a company. For more than 40 years he has worked for and consulted with a wide variety of for-profit and non-profit organizations.
