Attend Memorial Student Leadership Conferences, apply to be a Memorial Ambassador, and help out in student services like Welcome Week to advance your leadership abilities (and your resume).
What is "leadership"?
Leadership has many definitions. Often, people see leadership as a trait possessed by individuals who can motivate and organize groups of people – but this is only one approach. Leadership can also be practiced through service (such as through helping your fellow students or other organizations), entrepreneurship, activism, governance, and much more.
The key takeaway is this: leadership happens when you take action, especially when that action benefits the world around you.
We practice leadership in different ways, for different purposes, and that's okay. This means that no one's a leader all of the time, but everyone's a leader some of the time.
Student Life offers programming to support all students in their leadership pursuits. See below for more!
