Veritas Leadership Portfolio
The Veritas Leadership Portfolio program not only provides students with a deeper understanding of how to use their strengths to make the world a better place, but it gives them an opportunity to create a tangible component for their future.
The leadership portfolio is a series of four courses where students incrementally build an interactive online portfolio to showcase the leadership skills they learn at the Mount and to reflect their personal interests and future path. Students can build their portfolio as a virtual résumé and take it with them after they graduate to become more competitive in today's job market.
