The Leadership Corps provides opportunities for students to program special events, develop leadership competencies, and enhance presentations skills by facilitating workshops for campus and community organizations. Examples of this are Resident Assistant training from several college campuses on our ropes course at the College Lodge, Myers-Briggs Type Inventory presentations, and etiquette dinners.
The Leadership Awards Reception (co-sponsored by Leadership Corps, Campus Life, Faculty Student Association, and University Advancement) provides an opportunity for recognition of our student leaders on campus, while allowing a reception for several scholarship announcements.
The Leadership Minor would also provide students with hand-on experience in the New York Leadership Educator's Consortium (NYLEC). A yearly conference is planned in the summer to provide students and professionals in the field of leadership development an opportunity to learn new theories and present on current trends.
