Every semester the Center for Student Enrichment offers a dynamic series of 25-30 workshops on aspects of leadership development. Topics have included public speaking, working with youth, assertiveness, electronic networking, teambuilding, and communication. Other workshops have included kayaking, ropes courses, snowshoeing, and dining etiquette. Student fellows in the Student Leader Fellowship Program are expected to attend a minimum of 15 workshops during the two years they are in the program. Student fellows can also attend other presentations or workshops that can count as a skill builder! credit (up to 5) by doing a write-up about them. Instructions for these write-ups are available here.
The skill builders! marked with an asterisk* are part of a special series geared toward student organizations. They represent workshops that count towards the citizenship, diversity and leadership edges of Superior Edge and provide key tips and information on teamwork, motivation, programming, transition, leadership, ethics, and citizenship. Members are encouraged to attend as a group or individually. Why not utilize them to gain additional insight into interesting topics and acquire hours while working toward your "edge?" After attending a Superior Edge orientation, you can start logging hours, including some of the workshops in this series.
Skill Builders! are open to the general public.
