Keith Lovin Institute for Leadership and Values

Named after Maryville University president emeritus Keith Lovin, the Keith Lovin Institute for Leadership and Values reflects his vision of exemplary leadership, strong ethics and sound values. The Institute’s goal is to develop premier leaders through experiential learning, hands-on experience and mentoring. In the freshman year, a foundation of leadership is built through Alchemy, a student involvement and skill-building experience including a series of sessions that address various components related to leadership. Alchemy workshops are open to all Maryville students. Freshmen who participate in the minimum required Alchemy sessions, in addition to participation in community service and on-campus activities, are eligible to apply for the Keith Lovin Institute for Leadership and Values. The Institute is a three-year leadership program built on the foundation of Alchemy. Institute students have structured opportunities to integrate their classroom experiences with community involvement, mentoring, reflection and project implementation. Approximately 15 students per year are selected to participate as Fellows in the Institute.
