Juniata College alumni have demonstrated success and strength in a variety of leadership and management roles (CEO, VP, Director) in different organizational contexts—corporations, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations. Many of these alumni leaders are active in Juniata life through their engagement on the Board of Trustees, Alumni Council, the Juniata Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership Board and various academic advisory boards. They also provide mentorship through guest lectures, one-on-one mentoring sessions, and informal conversations with faculty and current students. Many of these alumni have also pursued graduate degrees to help better prepare them for their current roles.
The OL program is interdisciplinary in nature and includes study in business, math, communication, peace and conflict studies, ethics, and psychology. An interdisciplinary approach enhances creative approaches to problem solving, analytic and critical thinking, and collaboration.
Juniata has been known for its innovative and effective curriculum surrounding peace and conflict studies, as administered by the Baker Institute. Those skills are used daily by leaders in a wide variety of organizations and prove especially useful for those who hope to rise above conflict to inspire change and innovation.
