Leadership Certificate Program
Students who pursue a Leadership Certificate through Student Leadership & Involvement will gain knowledge, skills, and awareness in:
- Individual Leadership Development,
- Group Dynamics & Development, and
- Community Building
The experience of earning a Leadership Certificate allows students to make meaning of what it means to act as a leader for themselves and for others, with the support of a mentor. Plus, it helps prepare students for their graduate school or job interviews after college, and it looks great on a resume!
For more information, contact Sarah Fuller, the Leadership Development Graduate Assistant, to learn more about the program. In the meantime, download the Leadership Certificate Program Requirements and Learning Outcomes.
