LeaderShape Application Deadline Extended!

As you may be aware, the initial LeaderShape Institute application deadline was Monday, November 14th. With a handful of LeaderShape Institute spots remaining, we have decided to extend the application deadline on a rolling basis. We will continue to accept applications until we have reached a full LeaderShape cohort for the January session. Apply now to save your spot for this life-changing leadership retreat!

Through this program you will strive to:

  • Commit to identifying core personal values and act in ways that are congruent with those values
  • Through self-awareness and reflection, identify the ways social positionality informs perspective, reactions, and interactions
  • Develop relationships that honor the dignity of individuals and groups in the context of equity and social systems
  • Create a community-oriented vision that addresses critical social and global issues, embracing a healthy disregard for the impossible.

Join us January 4-7th at the Ford Center to discover what it means to have a healthy disregard for the impossible!

At the latest, applications will remain open until November 27th.

Student Scoop – October 19, 2022

#IamRemarkable Workshop

Have you ever been in a situation — in a job interview, meeting, or even a social situation — where you had to talk about your achievements? It’s not easy, is it? Many of us struggle when it comes to talking about our own accomplishments. Cultural and gender modesty norms as well as impostor syndrome can prevent anyone from acknowledging their remarkable attributes and expressing their achievements.

#IamRemarkable is a Google initiative empowering women and other underrepresented groups to celebrate their achievements in the workplace and beyond. The program has two goals:

  1. Improve the self-promotion motivation and skills of women and underrepresented groups
  2. Challenge the social perception around self-promotion

Trained facilitators Liz Fujita and Gretchen Hein will lead this impactful workshop for a small group of students on Tuesday, October 25th at 6 PM in the MUB Superior Room. Participants are encouraged to register in advance on Involvement Link as space is limited.

Through self-assessment, intensive small group discussions, team-building challenges, and more, participants will develop a vision for something they care about. 

By leading with passion, integrity, and a healthy disregard for the impossible, participants explore who they are and the impact that they want to have on communities working towards a more caring, just, and equitable society.

Sixty students will be selected to participate in this year’s Institute. Apply by November 13th to be considered. More information, including the application link, can be found on the Student Leadership and Involvement website.

African Students Organization October General Forum

Topic: “Positioning yourself beyond the gowns in the modern world”.

People tend to fantasize about realities, especially about what to expect after completing a series of activities. Hence, some do ignore important parts of their lives while being deeply indulged in these imaginations. Students pursuing graduate studies are often caught in such scenarios due to a lack of information and adequate preparation.  To preclude such situations among members and friends of our organization, the African Students Organization is organizing a talk as part of its October General Forum with the theme “positioning yourself beyond the gowns in the modern world”. Invited speakers are former students and members of the organization who are now accomplished in their fields (see the flyer). It promises to be highly impactful! Don’t miss it!

Our goal is to demystify and inform students about the amazing work being done in different departments and offices and how it can help them during their Tech journey.

We want our students to be more comfortable asking for help, and showing them where and who they can ask for their specific needs is one way we can do this. We will be having students meet at CDI and then we will walk them over to another office. This week we will visit the Center for Student Mental Health & Well-being and Equal Opportunity Compliance and Title XI.
