To be an effective campus leader, students can gain a better development of their leadership skills through observation and usage. Dugan & Komives (2007) provide ways to assist student in developing leadership skills:: 1. Leadership development should include opportunities for deliberate discussions on a wide range of issues. Students need to learn dialogue skills, listening skills, and need to be able to label personal beliefs and assumptions that guide their actions 2. Students must work with others to truly learn leadership with their academic advisors, career counseolors, resident assistancts, peers leaders, mentors, and other students.
I hope that I am thought of as person with extensive knowledge of the resources in my area as well as someone who continues to grow and learn from each new experience. I want to empower young people to better their lives and be a role model within my community. But with any goals one makes in life there are almost always several smaller goals one must make and steps one must take in order to get there. Applying is the very first step that I want to take in order to reach my goal of attending USC School of Social Work. The second step I want to take is taking in as much information as I can from my professors at USC.
Such research has captured my scholarly areas of passion. As a renowned research institution, UW-Madison will allow me the scholarly space and academic rigor to focus on my interest in child, youth and family areas, as well as aging areas, while allowing me to grow and be challenged. I have read plenty of positive comments that are made by the students who are currently enrolled in the school that make me believe in the school of Social Work will be the best place to let me grow academically, professionally, and
“The purpose of getting power is to be able to give it away.” These are wise words once spoken by the founder of the National Honor Society, Aneurin Bevan, explaining the dynamic of the NHS. Fundamentally, the National Honor Society is an esteemed organization that recognizes the achievements of treasured students and helps them advance their influence on their community, primarily in order to help others. In my past endeavors and years spent attending school, I have surpassed expectations in the fields of academics, character, leadership and service, and intend to use the platform of National Honor Society to further advance my presence in these areas. In my academia, it is apparent that I have excelled farther than most. I have retained
I hope that journey begins at NYU’s school of Arts and Sciences. Particularly with learning from Professors like Maureen Craig, who’s research about diversity and how it influences political and social thought, resonates strongly with my vision for future youth outreach. As the number one school for international students, I also hope to learn and experience more about the importance of diversity in our modern
Being an active member of the community that surround us is a priority in today’s society. Therefore, having the opportunity to assist seminars, partake in internships, study abroad or simply engage myself in activities where I will be able to discuss current issues and network with the leaders of today and tomorrow, is definitely one of those experiences that I’m looking forward the most. In addition, I believe that being part of such a diverse program and university will offered me the necessary tools to emerge as a more understanding, caring and accepting human being. I believe that The Honors College will be able to continuously feed my intellectual curiosity and my desire to become a better global citizen. I look forward to the challenges and opportunities that studying in your university may present, and will definitely value the opportunity of adding a bit of myself to your institution while hopefully being able to conquer new obstacles through my
According to Colvin, as future leaders, we need graduates who use their ‘intellectual prowess and analytical skill’ to search answers about the problems considering the related community. Adding to that, he says, “The knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary for effective leadership seem closely aligned with the desired learning outcomes of a liberal arts education, regardless of major” (35). Talking about leadership, Perkins presents a statement of Rebecca Hughes, Director of Education at the British Council in which she said that people with a broad cultural knowledge and academic training which inspire to look at human dimensions happen to lead and succeed as one of the vital elements of leadership is to ‘understanding people and cultures’. In the article “Great News! Your So-Called "Worthless" Liberal Arts Degree Actually Makes You a Better Leader”, Stacey Lastoe mentions about a notable found by the Development Dimensions International which is “humanities graduates did better than MBAs in a number of areas essential to performing as a leader”.
An article written by Emily Hanford, suggests that the success of getting students to maximizing their potential at college is understanding how each student learns. Teaching methods should be changed and it should be understood that there are constantly a diverse set of learners that make college slightly better. Hanford also states that education is crucial in our rapidly evolving world and that the learning methods that are used aid in the student becoming a better person post-graduation as well, which I wholeheartedly believe in and should be broadened across campuses. In an article written by Julie Lain to YOUniversityTV, she states how she is thankful for the opportunities that a prestigious college education has given her. Not only did it build her societal skills, but she also improved her writing skills tremendously as well.
An example would be creating the design and speech for the new PowerPoint presentation for recruitment of student staff.

From the experience I hope to gain more knowledge, memories, good experience and why not... friends. My goal in order to contribute to the Conference outreach and growth of the Líderes Network is to introduce the program in my community and campus. This way more people will know the program and young people can benefit from it.
This is a day where students honor Dr. King 's legacy by turning community concerns into citizen action through volunteer work. The MLK challenge brings together students who might not ordinarily meet and breaks down barriers that have divided us a nation. I had the opportunity to plan out some of the volunteer work the students would be doing to embrace MLK’s dream and plan the ceremonies that would honor the volunteer’s hard work. Also, I helped organize Truman State’s first Social Justice Leadership Summit. The idea for the summit was to give students the skills needed to create change in their community.
The President 's Leadership Academy is an opportunity for students who do not settle for the regular curriculum and aspire to become involved servant-leaders through experiential learning, workshops, and classes. The mission of the PLA is to give BGSU students the opportunity to sharpen their leadership skills through a curriculum based on the concept of servant leadership. This way, these young adults may be able to grow in their leadership abilities and contribute to society both while in school and after graduation. I am particularly interested in being a part of the PLA because of my joy for servant leadership. In my high school career I have assumed many leadership positions.
FBLA gives a new meaning to a student led organization; FBLA gives power to the students that run the organization to serve the community and the school, while developing business leadership. As an officer, I would contribute to its legacy of responsible leadership and continue to uphold the goals of not only our chapter, but also the entire organization. I want to become an officer because I want to be a role model to current and future members who will use what they learned in FBLA to help change the world. It is important to be involved and enhance business skills in order to thrive in the future, whether it be in business or not. Using the power and influence of an officer will further empower me to help lead the members with the other
The National Honor Society is an opportunity for many students, who are well educated with dreams and leaderships skills, to upgrade themselves. The sole purpose of this organization is to endeavor leaders in different societies to help out their community. It will help colleges to notify the leaders when looking at students’ resumes, for those students in this organization will be the few who are well-developed leaders in their school. Since this will be the first time to be given the opportunity to contribute to this organization, I may not know everything about the requirements in which I need to manage. However, it is clear to me that I must work as a leader and manage many services for my community.
To get the best marks possible and to get the most out my time at university, I will take advantage of the HSB mentoring program, the Student Success Center, and studying with friends. These strategies will help me keep my work and priorities in order, and lead me to success at
