"Do not follow where the path may lead.
Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."

-Harold R. McAlindon

Utica College offers all students the chance to learn more about themselves and how they can make an impact in their community by learning and developing basic leadership knowledge and skills to contribute to the overall education of the whole person.  Leadership training and development is offered in a multitude of capacities.




THE NATIONAL SOCIETY OF LEADERSHIP AND SUCCESS

     The NSLS is an organization that helps Utica College Students discover and achieve their goals. The National Society offers life-changing lectures from the nation's leading presenters and a community where like-minded, success-oriented individuals come together and help one another succeed. NSLS "builds leaders who make a better world."  We are dream supporters, we encourage people to achieve their goals, we ask what could be done if failure wasn't possible, then help them accomplish those goals and continue to create new ones.



LEADERSHIP WEEKEND


     Every fall semester, there is a trip planned for students to Raquette Lake to learn team-building skills, personal leadership styles, and group dynamics and interaction.  Leaders apply to the Leadership Weekend Committee and are chosen based on community involvement and passion for the UC campus.  To learn more about Leadership Weekend trip, click the link to the left.

LEADERSHIP WORKSHOPS

STUDENT ORG BOARD TRAINING


     Each Spring semester, student organizations re-register with the Student Government Association and the Office of Student Living and College Engagement.  Executive board members of each club are required to attend Student Organization Board Training held by the office.  The training guide is in a link on the SLCE home Page for student orgs to reference throughout the year.


LEADERSHIP TRAINING CLASS


     This 5-week leadership class is offered in the Spring semester for students who want to learn more about becoming a "certified campus leader."  The class is especially geared toward those interested in becoming Orientation Mentors, Peer Tutor Counselors for the Summer Institute Program, and/or Resident Advisors.  Topics for classes include Leadership Styles & Team-building, Ethics & Integrity, Conflict Resolution, Boundaries & Social Media, and Diversity.
