The leadership program identifies skills for our students who are just embarking on the leadership journey to our seniors who are honing their skills for the job search. Students do not need to have a "formal“ title to participate in each series. Content and delivery vary but each series focuses on developing and strengthening demonstrated skills that future employers will be seeking.
Leadership Through Involvement
One of the best ways students can develop their own leadership skills is through club involvement. Both on the participant and executive board levels, students are able to develop skills in the areas of: group dynamics, communication, trust, follow through, time management, negotiating and much more! Students are also able to use their experiences to develop and grow their own personal Leadership styles.

Leadership through Employment
The Office of Student Activities and Leadership Development is committed to enhancing student development outside of the classroom. A great way to develop your leadership is through on campus employment. Campus Center employees participate in training and professional development throughout the year to enhance their transferable leadership skills.
Leadership Summit takes place at the beginning of each semester and brings together leaders from all over campus. This large scale event typically includes a presentation from and off campus guest and a workshop on how these larger ideas can help leaders in the work they do on campus throughout the semester.
