A Leadership Expo was held in Fels Lounge on February 9 from 1:30-2:15 p.m. Several tables were set up promoting leadership opportunities and organizations along with on-campus employment opportunities.
There were pamphlets filled with information for students interested in joining Bison Academy or the Emerging Leaders Program. Bison Academy is a series of leadership workshops offered by Student Life. Workshops range from basic, intermediate, and master. Students will receive a certificate of completion at the Student Leadership Awards once they’ve finished the program. The Emerging Leaders Program is a four-year program that helps students develop their leadership skills. The program explores what qualities a leader should possess and how leaders have an advantage in the job market.
There were several job opportunities available through Residence Life, the Academic Resource Center (ARC), and the Admissions Department. Residence Life is looking for Resident Advisors and Community Managers. The ARC is in need of writing fellows and tutors, and the Admissions Department is hiring Ambassadors. Other job openings include Orientation Leaders and Teaching Assistants for first year PDS courses. The Student Government Association was also present to accept new members.
The Leadership Expo is one example of how easy it is to get involved on campus, find employment or a leadership position. Every semester there is a need for TAs and RAs; every campus position builds up a student’s resume and work ethic. There are plenty of jobs and leadership opportunities for every student so everyone has a chance to succeed.
