Leadership Development

Student Leadership Institute

The Student Leadership Institute is a series of interactive workshops designed to help students develop and refine personal leadership skills.
Participants may choose to take part in a series of sessions and earn a certificate - or attend any individual session YOU would like!  

These tracks are:

   Leading Self: Equip YOURSELF with fundamental skills and ideas to grow as leaders, students, and individuals!

    Leading Others: YOU will be introduced to practical strategies for leading effectively in groups in the classroom, the home, the workplace, and beyond!

    Leading in a Diverse World: Enhance YOUR understanding of other people and learn strategies to initiate further learning!

    Leading@IC: Prepare YOURSELF to lead within student organizations through workshops that provide useful information and resources as well as help students develop leadership            skills! (If you are attending Leading@IC sessions to fulfill a major requirement you will need to confirm with your department if these sessions count toward your requirement.)



  1. Register for the session(s) you plan to attend on Orgsync*.  You must pre-register for SLI sessions in order to receive credit.
    (NOTE: As a courtesy to our presenters, registration will close 48 hours prior to each event.  It is important to plan ahead if you want to register!)
  2. When you arrive at the session you registered for, sign your name on the sign-in sheet.  A student SLI host will be at every SLI session with a sign-in sheet.
  3. You're done!  It can take several days for our SLI team to register your attendance into the Orgsync system. 
    Once you are credited with attending an event, you will receive an e-mail confirmation.

* Block 1 sessions will open for registration on August 28, 2013. 


Please fill out this form for consideration.
