Topics include:

  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Policies and procedures
  • University relations
  • Fundraising
  • Effective leadership

In addition, the training will encompass follow up workshops addressing other elements that are essential to student leadership.


Expected student outcomes:

  • Gain an understanding of their roles at student leaders on campus
  • Learn how to set an example that will inspire other students to get involved on campus
  • Learn the importance of collaboration and networking
  • Produce effective leaders that will produce quality events that will help improve the college experience for other students
