Lessons in Leadership

The C8: Do you “C” leadership in you?

At Texas A&M University, we’re committed to developing leaders in the classroom and beyond. Leaders from the College of Architecture developed a system of eight principles for leadership, called the Aggie C8. The CRS Center produced eight “Profiles in Leadership” videos that explain and illuminate each element:

  • Character
  • Communication
  • Creativity
  • Competition
  • Competence
  • Collaboration
  • Courage
  • Community

Three of the college’s Outstanding Alumni Awards winners — Harold L. Adams ’62, James R. “Jim” Thompson ’68 and William L. “Bill” Peel Jr. ’74 — became dogged champions and mentors of this leadership program.

This program was funded by the College of Architecture’s Development Advisory Committee (CADAC) and proposed by Geoffrey John Booth.
