The John R. Wooden Leadership Institute will utilize resources developed by Coach Wooden. Resources will include the legendary Pyramid of Success, the teachings of Coach Wooden and books written by Coach Wooden. The curriculum will include a public service component during each year of enrollment at Purdue University.
This will be under the direction of Cathy Wright-Eger, leadership advisor with Purdue Athletics. The monthly seminars will be taught by current athletics department administrators, coaches, institutional administrators, alumni, and corporate leaders.
Current components: Monthly meetings of the Boilermaker Athletic Council, monthly meetings of the Emerging Leaders, fall and Spring EDPS courses for freshmen student-athletes, transition programs for exhausted eligibility student-athletes, community service projects, D.I.S.C. Behavioral Assessment.
Purdue student-athletes that complete the John R. Wooden Institute curriculum will receive the prestigious certificate of achievement. At the conclusion of the senior year, student-athletes must write an essay describing their experience in the institute and how they plan to utilize the teachings in the future. The certificate of achievement will be presented each year at the Senior Salute.
