Falcon Leadership Institute
C. RAYMOND MARVIN CENTER FOR STUDENT LEADERSHIP
The Falcon Leadership Institute develops emerging leaders with the confidence, ability, and passion to be active and engaged leaders in their communities. Through the one-semester leadership development course, FLI participants have the opportunity to attend a weekend leadership retreat, plan and implement a service project, and gain invaluable leadership experiences and insights during their first semester at BGSU.
The Marvin Center for Student Leadership’s Falcon Leadership Institute develops self-aware leaders who have the skills to build professional networks and create personal connections within their cohort and throughout campus. Additionally, FLI helps each student develop skills most sought after by future employers, including decision making, communication, and ability to work in a team structure. Guided by the ideals of servant leadership, students participate in service-learning and leadership projects that enhance the community. Participants begin earning the BGSU Leadership Certificate by learning the skills and competencies necessary for a successful life and career.
LEAD 1000 is a 3-credit course that is only offered in the Fall semester. This leadership development course gives participants the opportunity to attend a weekend leadership retreat in September 2020, plan and implement a service project, participate in personal, team, and professional development opportunities, learn valuable leadership skills and theories, and begin earning the BGSU Leadership Certificate. This course takes a deep dive into the study of leadership development and offers students information on how to get involved during their time on campus.
The Falcon Leadership Institute's weekend leadership retreat will take place in September 2020. All FLI participants are required to attend and have the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with their cohort. This weekend allows participants to participate in team-building activities with their cohort, learn about valuable leadership techniques such as group consensus, brainstorm your service project ideas, and take an in-depth personality assessment.
The C. Raymond Marvin Center for Student Leadership views mentorship as an important component in personal growth and individual leadership development. Mentors can serve as both role models and resources as you progress through college and into your professional career. All students participating in FLI are required to have an upper-class student mentor. This can be an individual who you identify on your own, or someone from the list of possible mentors. During the student’s first semester, they will connect with their mentor and establish goals that they would like to accomplish and expectations for how to accomplish them.
In keeping with the core values of Bowling Green State University, cohort members will be designing, coordinating, and implementing a service project that they will work on all semester. These members will be divided into groups and each group will participate in a service-learning project that enhances the community. By taking part in this project, cohort members help others, put the relational leadership model and servant leadership theory into practice, and represent BGSU and the C. Raymond Marvin Center for Student Leadership at its highest. Following the completion of the project, each group will also give a formal presentation on the project in front of campus community members. All group members must actively participate in planning the service project and final presentation.
