CMHT Leadership Academy

Thank you for your interest in the CMHT Transformational Leadership Academy. Our mission is to transform students into visionary leaders who are confident, articulate, ethical, and adept in relationship building and problem solving. Through coaching, networking, academic coursework, mentoring, workshops and service learning activities, you will learn valuable skills that will change the way you think and lead. 

To begin this exciting journey you will need to complete an online application. We recommend that you compose your responses in a Word document before you begin the online application. To help you prepare, please download the Quick Guide for Preparing Your Application (Word format, PDF format).  Once you begin the application, you will need to complete it in one sitting. Please set aside time to devote to your application.

Applications will be reviewed by a CMHT faculty committee on a bi-weekly basis. We encourage you to apply early as space is limited in this unique development opportunity. The final deadline for the Fall 2021 cohort is September 1, 2021. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Christy Crutsinger, Professor, Merchandising & Digital Retailing (
