Leadership Program: Leadership Roundtables and Consultations
In addition to a great education, students attend college to learn and practice the skills and abilities they will need to lead in business, community organizations and systems beyond college. Whether they work for a non-profit agency, business entity, or volunteer their time in these places, employers are looking for particular skill sets that students can learn in the out-of-class experience.
The Office of Leadership and Student Development offers a series of planned and specially designed workshops, called Leadership Roundtables, to help students develop their knowledge, skills, and abilities in a number of key social skill areas. When designing workshops, our staff focuses on the eight OLSD Leadership Competencies that we believe will help prepare our students to become the next generation of women leaders.
Our leadership workshops are grounded in the widely accepted Social Change Model (SCM) of Leadership, which is an approach to leadership development, focused on the process of enacting social change from multiple perspectives. The Social Change Model was created in 1994 and is now the most widely used college student leadership model in the United States. To learn more about the model, click here.
Students can attend one of the many leadership roundtables scheduled throughout the year. Student leaders or groups of students can also request to have a staff member, present a leadership workshop at a time and location convenient to them. Faculty and staff are also encouraged to have their students take advantage of the services we offer.
