The Leadership Development Program offers a variety of volunteer opportunities for faculty, staff, alumni and community members to get involved in the personal and professional growth of our students. Ranging in duration and level of commitment, we rely heavily on our volunteers to ensure the programs success. More information about these opportunities can be found below.
Awards Selection Committees
The Leadership Development Program seeks volunteers annually to serve on selection committees for a variety of student awards. Typically, these ad hoc committees lasts 2-3 months. These selection committees include:
Leadership Development Program Planning Committees
The execution of a successful program relies on involvement of a diverse array of faculty, staff and students on our planning committees. These committees usually meet twice a month, and include the following:
Green Leadership Workshop Presentations
The Green Leadership Certificate focuses on invidual values. We seek workshop presenters to facilitate an interactive session that addresses one of the outcomes listed below and also encourages students to think about diverse issues as they relate to their own leadership development. Workshop presenters are asked to present twice each semester.
As a result of these workshops, students will be able to:
Annual Student Leadership Conference
Each year in November, the call for programs will go out to solicit proposals for this years conference, themed "Finding your Voice." In particular, we encourage alumni to come back and present, but are more than happy to welcome community members as well.
STUDENT DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES
Green Leadership Mentors
A large component of the Green Leadership Certificate emphasizes the use of mentors to meet with students in order to promote self reflection and continued learning once the workshop has ended. In 2011-2012, we had more than 100 faculty and staff mentors, and with the program growing each year, the number of mentors needed continues to grow. Mentors are typically assigned 1-2 students who may share interests, career aspirations, or other attributes. Each mentor should plan to meet with his/her mentees once a month, September - May.
Gold Leadership Advisors
During the Gold Leadership Certificate, focused on Group Values, a group of 6-8 students works together to complete a Social Action Project, designed to benefit the community or address an issue. We rely on advisors to meet once a month with their group and provide challenge and support. Many students have never had the opportunity to plan a community project, so we rely on the advisor to help them navigate these new experiences while promoting initiative, ownership and personal growth.
