Do you strive to be a great leader? To benefit from our leadership development program you don't need to have lofty goals of becoming President or winning a Nobel Peace Prize. You don't even need to currently hold a "leadership position." If you simply want to enhance your personal leadership qualities and skills, then let the leadership development program help you out.
Make your college life exciting and challenging by becoming involved in one or more of the 275 organizations on campus. Student Organizations provide students with experiences outside of the classroom that will develop and enhance skills that can be used on the job and through life. Check out our student organization website, Involvement@UND (http://involvement.und.edu), to meet new people, boost your resume, and have a lot of fun!
The Student Involvement & Leadership Office is home to the GLBT Resource Center. Staff members provide resources, make referrals to support services, and help students get connected to other gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender students and their straight supports. Educational events and programs on GLBT topics and issues are also planned throughout the year and open to the entire UND Community.
Volunteering is a great way to enhance interpersonal and leadership skills, get real world experience, explore careers and develop references. By utilizing the resources available from the Volunteer Bridge, you can give back to the community and have a lot of fun. Volunteers may commit for a single event, a semester, or for an entire year in any of seven major interest areas.
