The shared focus of all BLI programming is the Ten BLI Habits. We invoke the idea of habit to signal that mastering effective leadership takes sustained work and systematic practice. The Habits are general. They apply everywhere and can be practiced with increasing complexity as particular circumstances require. They are habits because students will internalize them through their efforts on campus and thus be able to draw on and innovate with them when they face new opportunities and unknown situations after their time at Michigan has ended. These habits and the associated content, case studies, and learning activities form the shared core of BLI programming.
