The Office of Student Involvement and colleagues from across campus are thrilled to offer the Eighth Annual Emerging Leaders Institute for aspiring student leaders within the Villanova Community. The Emerging Leaders Institute is a two-day on-campus program, offered each Spring Semester, designed to develop and enhance leadership styles and skills of our undergraduate students. We cover topics such as:
- Personality Types
- Leadership Dynamics
- Public Speaking
- Building Self-Confidence.
Students will work closely with other emerging leaders through in-depth simulations. By identifying their unique strengths and articulating their personal/professional vision, students will be able to identify several leadership paths at Villanova. This opportunity is limited to only 50 students; first-come, first-serve!
Participants who attend both sessions will receive a signed certificate of completion. Dinner is provided.
Villanova Challenge Course
The Villanova Challenge Course and Low Ropes Course is challenging, demanding and fun! Groups must work together to accomplish physically and mentally challenging tasks. After each activity, facilitators process and breakdowns the elements that contributed to the success of the group. Discussion will also reveal obstacles that caused frustration and problems along the way.
Through taking risks, participants gain new personal and interpersonal skills and insights - the basis for growth and change. Activities are safe, stimulating, and occur in an atmosphere of support and caring. Results can be rapid and profound.
