We Believe Leadership is for YOU!

We believe leadership is for everyone, and that includes YOU! Leadership skills can be learned and everyone has the capacity to lead in some way. Our workshops are here to help you tap into your own leadership potential!

We offer a variety of workshops to help students become more intentional, self-aware, and effective leaders during their time at OSU and beyond. By doing so, students will enhance their ability to create and advance positive social change both individually and collectively.

Participate in any of our workshops to develop your personal leadership identity so you can more clearly and confidently answer the question: Who am I as a leader and what am I working towards?

Our workshops are informed and tied together by our CEL Leadership Identity Model, which can be viewed at the bottom of the webpage: Our approach to community engagement & leadership.
