Stryker Institute for Leadership Development

Welcome to Stryker Institute!

The Institute provides students with leadership seminars, an accompanying educational scholarship, opportunities to exercise their emerging leadership skills, and a sustained program of support.

Staff members associated with the Institute believe that students’ potential for leadership can be strengthened by recognizing the talents they already possess and challenging them to build on these talents.

Attention Stryker Alumni

we are extremely interested in keeping connected with all of our past scholarship recipients. We feel that a meaningful bond was established when our scholarship recipients began their association with the Stryker Institute as student leaders, and that this bond was strengthened each year as they progressed through our leadership program. In order to keep this connection alive and to track how our participants and alumni are progressing toward fulfilling the mission of the Stryker Institute and their personal goals of “making a difference today and transforming the world tomorrow," please take a moment to fill out an Alumni Update form by clicking Clicking Here
