Student Leadership Institute

The Student Leadership Institute is a series of professional training workshops, where students, who have been observed to show a consistent display of involvement on campus, will have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills while learning from mentors consisting of supervisors and program coordinators from different programs around campus.

During these workshops, students will receive help with their resumes, learn how to properly dress for interviews, review proper dining etiquette for business meetings, and the importance of networking as a part of our efforts to build their leadership skills and prepare them for an exciting opportunity to attend a number of selected national conferences.

These topics will be discused durnig the Student Leadership Institute:
