Petullo Insight  
Date: January, 21, 2017
Being aware of your own strengths and values is the first step towards being a leader. The Insight Leadership program is designed to help students focus on self-awareness and self-management.  This program will help students identify their personal values and personal leadership philosophy, while exploring their personal strengths and social identities.

Date: January 28, 2017
Every day, you interact with people who are different from you – different thoughts, different beliefs, different value systems, different traditions. Differences can either be a source of great strength or the reason for divisions. INCLUSION engages with and unpacks concepts such as equity, equality, diversity, inclusion and bias. Through activity-based learning, INCLUSION teaches how to be a leader by understanding and embracing these differences.

These programs come at no additional cost to students enrolled in the university. Limited spots are available, so register today!

Apply to be on the Subcommittee on Student Conduct or the Subcommittee on Sexual Misconduct!  

Service on these committees is a challenging and satisfying way for students and faculty to enhance their academic experience. In addition to the actual review of discipline cases, training activities help committee members enhance their abilities to organize time, develop critical thinking skills, and to improve communication skills. Some students who have served on the committee have achieved great success in law school and other professional careers. Many students felt that their experience on the committee made a definite positive impact on their abilities to interview articulately and confidently. Many faculty members have said that they have appreciated the opportunity to work with students on the committee and to gain a better understanding of the challenges students in our community face.
