Fall Leadership Training

Tuesday, August 29th, 8:30 am - 3:15 pm, Wilson Commons

The Fall Leadership training's mission is to provide student leaders a comprehensive, collaborative learning experience that they will benefit from and in turn strengthen their organization. Our goal for this training is to provide you with a breadth of information, resources, and ideas about successful student organization leadership. Breakout sessions will be led by professional staff and experienced student leaders.

  • Last year 423 student organization leaders attended
  • 81% said the benefited from attending the leadership training
  • The Graphic Service table at the Expo received the highest review

Each group is expected to send two executive board representatives to the training; if your organization has a business manager, that person should attend. It is also recommended that those executive members that have the responsibility for Event Registration or maintaining CCC information should attend. Fraternity & Sorority, Club Sports, and Special Interest Housing organizations are limited to 2 members. It's to your advantage to include as many members as possible. If you have questions about this, contact your primary advisor.

We hope this training will prove engaging and beneficial for the University of Rochester's 250+ student organizations. Our student organizations bring great richness, innovation, awareness, and energy to our campus. Student Organization Leaders that have primary advisors from Fraternity and Sorority Affairs, the Interfaith Chapel, Athletics & Recreation, the Rochester Center for Community Leadership, Residential Life, and Wilson Commons Student Activities are invited to attend the Fall Leadership Training on Tuesday, August 29th.
