SRU’s CSIL plans leadership workshops
SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – The Slippery Rock University Center for Student Involvement and Leadership will host a series of Compass Leadership Program Summits as a way of helping students develop both personal and community-related leadership skills.
The Compass Leadership Program, directed by Brad Kovaleski, center director, offers a three-tiered leadership program designed to improve overall leadership skills.
Participating students are required to fully complete each level before moving onto the next summit – or level.
All sessions are from 5-9 p.m. in the University Union.
At the Level One summit, students participated in interactive leadership workshops covering such topics as diversity, values and ethics and getting involved.
The Feb. 15 and Feb. 28 Level Two summits will cover group dynamics, communication, conflict resolution, leadership style and diversity awareness. To complete Level Two, students are required to complete a Personal Leadership Plan, which includes 13 evaluative questions that allow them to reflect on their personal leadership development through the program.
The Level Three summits, March. 22 and March 26, will focus on leadership in the community. Freshman students are not permitted to attend Level Three sessions.
After completing all of the workshops, students must present a leadership portfolio in which the reflect on their leadership experiences throughout their time at SRU as well as what they hope to accomplish.
Certificates are provided for those who complete each level of the program.
To register, or for further details, contact the CSIL office, located in the University Union. Walk-ins are also welcome.
