About the Student Leadership Institute

The Center for Student Leadership and Involvement announces Spring 2006 series for the Student Leadership Institute. This free program is an ongoing series of workshop sessions designed around topics in leadership and is intended for all Ithaca College students. Designed with flexibility and varied levels of involvement in mind, the Institute allows students to choose their level of participation by attending as many leadership sessions as they wish based upon their own interests.

Although not required, those students attending multiple sessions have the option to earn one of the leadership certificates. The leadership certificates are designed to provide students with a tangible incentive for participation in the leadership sessions, and to recognize students who invest time and energy into developing their leadership knowledge and skills. The individual leadership certificates are designed around broad topics in leadership and are earned upon completion of the outlined requirements for each certificate. Certificates are earned over the course of one to four years based upon the scheduling of the related leadership sessions and the attendance of the interested student.

Current certificates include :
“Leading Self”
“Leading Others”
“Leadership in a Diverse World”

Additional certificates will be introduced as the program grows.
