Talk about how leadership fits into your University of Portland education: My internship through the Faith-Based Leadership Initiative was incredibly valuable. I got to see first-hand how the concepts that I have been learning for the past 3 years apply to a real business. I learned about how Catholic Charities operates, deals with challenges, and utilizes leadership. I was able to witness budgeting, strategic planning, management coaching, and a board meeting. My internship was a key part of my education at UP, and I have been recommending the Faith-Based Leadership Initiative to my friends.
