LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS

Emerging Leaders Program

The Emerging Leaders Program is a seven-session seminar that includes workshops and presentations, and focuses on developing practical leadership skills and understanding what leadership entails. This is an activity-based program intended to enhance the leadership skills you already possess, teach you something new, enrich your college experience, and benefit your personal and career objectives.

The program employs a combination of experiential learning, simulations and guest speakers to assist you in developing your abilities.

Leadership Workshops

In keeping with the mission of Hilbert College, Leadership Workshops endeavor to empower informed global citizens who are committed to serving and strengthening their communities. Participation in these programs affords the opportunity to develop and enhance individual skills, network with others, and build an impressive resume. 

Leadership Workshops are implemented and advertised each semester ensuring a wide range of timely topics.  Some workshops will require pre-registration. For more information contact Jim Sturm, vice provost for leadership development and dean of students.

Leadership Training Camp

Leadership Training Camp provides a fun way to keep the wheels turning during the summer months so campus leaders can hit the ground running in the fall!

Held each spring following Commencement, Leadership Training Camp brings together students who will serve as campus leaders for the following academic year. The two-day program combines goal-setting, team activities, and workshops that develop leadership skills and start the planning process for the next year.

Among the participating groups are resident assistants, peer leaders, ambassadors, student government officers, and athletic team captains.   

Testimonials

Melody Cole"Being involved in the Emerging Leaders program has given me a better understanding of what it means to be a leader, and that different people have different qualities that make them good leaders. Emerging leaders gave me more confidence about my ability to act in various leadership roles on campus. This confidence sparked an interest to get more involved on campus, allowing me to make new friends and use the skills I learned in the program."

The Emerging Leaders Program helped me develop as an individual inside and outside the classroom. I learned how to work with others on a team and also how to manage a busy college life. The program was a learning and growing experience, which led to being a Peer Leader on campus. Most importantly, the Emerging Leaders Program taught me how to have confidence in myself."
