Employment - Student Development and Leadership Program
The Student Development and Leadership Program (SDL) provides training that includes a philosophical orientation to the field of leadership and a series of workshops. SDL workshops offer hands-on educational experience and prepare individuals for lifelong career and personal growth. Participants develop an appreciation for engaged leadership while inspiring active and healthy lifestyles.
In order to promote student learning, SDL sessions are grounded in theory. The two anchors for theoretical support are Kouzes & Posner’s Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership and the BGSU Orientation and First Year Program’s Pillars for Student Success. Facilitators are mindful of these connections when creating programs.
