This is a perfect way to incorporate that competency into your leadership toolkit, meet people who share your interests, and contribute to making BGSU a more inclusive community.

Center for Leadership: Be the Change, Lead the Change

Leadership is learned. The Center for Leadership guides, engages, and teaches students to achieve true leadership abilities. We use mentors, teachers, and community leaders to help students develop this lifelong skill. It is a skill our students use today in their classrooms, in student organizations, and in the community. It is a skill that becomes a part of who they are and who they will become.

Through workshops, classes, and special programs, we take students through every facet of leadership. They learn to lead with integrity and get others excited about getting involved. They learn the real meaning of group dynamics and how to create a team that works as one to achieve its goals. Students learn how to engage others and how to settle conflicts. We give them direction on how to network, broaden their reach, and excel in their missions. We teach them that leaders never stop learning.
