Leadership Training

Involvement in campus activities, regardless of type, is a great way to enhance existing skills and develop new ones. Student Affairs staff members, along with other University colleagues, offer both group and individual advising on issues of leadership for any interested students.

  • Leadership Weekend: Each semester the office coordinates a retreat for a group of undergraduate student leaders. Typically the retreat is held in October during the fall semester and February during the spring. 
  • PENNacle: A pre-orientation program for incoming freshmen, PENNacle brings together upperclass leaders and new students to explore options for campus involvement and develop mentoring relationships.
  • Customized Training: Many organizations hold retreats and short workshops during the year for team building and planning. OSA staff members can assist with program advice and occasional facilitation on request.
  • Individual Advising: Have an organizational conflict? Not sure how to accomplish your group’s goals? Need help managing your budget? OSA staff members are happy to help — just ask.

A note about Leadership Training Weekend during the pandemic

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the leadership training weekend programming has been put on hold. We hope to resume this event when it is safe enough for us to truly gather in-person in a safe way.
