Leadership Development

Looking for new ideas about how to help your students become stronger leaders?  Leadership Lab is a free professional development series open to all Student Life staff. Upcoming sessions include discussions with prominent employers who recruit Ohio State students to learn more about the strengths they see in our graduates, and how students can gain more leadership skills through involvement with Student Life.

The first Leadership Lab is scheduled for Thursday, May 25. An optional “Leadership 101” presentation will be offered from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. as an introduction to leadership theory. The main training will be 1-4 p.m. in the Ohio Union. You can sign up online.
