Leadership Week: LEAD21

March 15-19, 2021!

LEAD21 is a new weeklong leadership event that will be filled with a variety of workshops and events that will bring students from across NSU together to learn about and engage in topics related to leadership and overall student development. Events will be hosted by a variety of office across the DOSA/COUS division and campus. Students can also connect with faculty, staff, presenters, and other students to expand their network at the university.

Like our other programs in the Office of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement, sessions will focus on leadership core competencies based on the National Association of Campus Activities Student Leader competencies. We structure our programs within these competencies to offer students the ability to continue their growth and development throughout their university experience.

This year’s theme is "Grow Through, What You Go Through. The Leadership Week Planning Committee is seeking program proposals focusing on at least one of the following core content areas:  

  • Leadership  
    • This competency is focused on the ways and means of leadership development through skill-building and education that will help young adults navigate college and prepare for their future leadership roles.  
  • Innovation  
    • This competency is focused on prioritizing innovative, forward-thinking, and sustainable practices through technology that will create a holistic and supportive environment for students.  
  • Connection  
    • This competency is focused on NSU’s mission to commit to community through engagement of students and faculty members. Although everyone is experiencing difficulties during this time it important to develop a sense of belonging and building a support system that will help students thrive academically and personally at NSU.  
  • Authenticity 
    • This competency is focused on building skills that will help students preserve and navigate challenges during college. Some topics can include growth mindset, resilience, managing stress, studying tips, and so much more.

BYSTANDER INTERVENTION STRATEGIES FOR STUDENT LEADERS

Bystanders are individuals who witness situations where they have the opportunity to provide assistance, yet choose to do nothing or contribute to negative behavior. Prosocial bystanders are those who seek to intervene in ways that create a positive outcome. As a leader, you can model the behavior of a prosocial bystander for the rest of the community - and encourage everyone to stand up against sexual misconduct. Come learn some strategies for intervention with Title IX Prevention Initiatives!

In our discipline of hunt seat equitation, it is up to us as riders to safely and effectively communicate with an animal that we first meet the day of our competitions.
