Are you interested in getting involved with Leadership Programs? Consider joining one of the many cohort programs offered by the office each semester. A cohort program is one where the same individuals meet together over a specific period of time, which could be six weeks to one semester. The programs are designed around a basic interest area or approach to leadership and prior leadership experience is not required to join. If you are looking for an opportunity to get connected to other students, cohort programs are a great way to make connections and build relationships.
Leadership Programs, in collaboration with the Multicultural Center, is sponsoring the Baldwin Book Club, an opportunity for students to come together to discuss a book with social justice themes. As leaders in a multicultural society, it is important to understand how to navigate social justice issues and work with diverse individuals. The Baldwin Book Club provides a forum for students to talk about these important issues and learn from each other about what is needed to be culturally competent leaders. The Baldwin Book Club selection for Fall 2021 is Climate Justice: Hope, Resilience, and the Fight for a Sustainable Future by Mary Robinson, Former President of Ireland and United Nations Special Envoy on Climate Change. Be a part of the conversation by joining us online or in person every month. Reserve your space online.
Emerging Leaders is a nine-week leadership program for first-year students who want to enhance their leadership and communication skills, be successful in college, get involved on campus, and develop friendships. Mentors are sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students who are knowledgeable about succeeding in college, willing to share the ins and outs of Georgia State, and be a source of encouragement to mentees. Beyond the benefits to first-year students, the program also provides an excellent opportunity for upper-level students to demonstrate their leadership and provide service to the campus community. Research has shown that students who get involved on campus have higher GPAs and are more likely to remain at the university. The goal of the Emerging Leaders program is to expose students to campus and community involvement opportunities, while simultaneously equipping them with the skills needed to succeed during their first year. Program highlights include weekly leadership workshops based on the book, 7 Habits on the Go, a retreat, and interactive activities. Questions about the program should be directed to Kirk Johnson, Coordinator for Student Engagement.
