The Student Involvement staff is here to assist the students of UND in broadening their educational experience by providing a variety of leadership opportunities. In doing so, we will help students in any way possible. Feel free to help yourself to the various leadership development and inspirational handouts. Should you need information or are interested in learning more about leadership, please do not hesitate to stop by the Student Involvement & Leadership Office.
The Student Involvement Office is located on the first floor of the Memorial Union and assistance is available during Memorial Union hours.
LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES AT UND
Membership in a fraternity or sorority is one of the most outstanding means of discovering and refining your leadership potential. Within each council and chapter, numerous leadership positions exist, all requiring different degrees of skill and investment. Greek organizations provide opportunities for their members to gain leadership skills that will serve them well in college and beyond. The skills students gain through involvement in their Greek chapter and campus community will greatly benefit them in their chosen career field. Greeks are involved across campus including Student Government, Student Ambassadors, and various other organizations, committees and groups.
Poolman Leadership Academy
If you're interested in building your leadership potential, the Poolman Leadership Academy will help you develop the skills to positively impact your campus, community and the world through education, engagement and enrichment. A one-day leadership seminar followed by weekly interactive development sessions will give you the tools you need to take your role as a leader to the next level.
Students residing in the residence halls have the option of becoming actively involved in numerous leadership positions either in one's hall or through the Association of Residence Halls. ARH is the governing body of students who represent UND's residence hall system locally, regionally, and nationally. Individual halls have their own governments that offer, among others, the following leadership positions: president, vice president, treasurer, and wing representatives.

Your leadership skills are constantly developing. The Spring Leadership Conference (SLC) gives you an opportunity to spend the day learning from passionate individuals— both peers and professionals. Through 50 minute and shorter flash sessions, round-table discussions and a special keynote speaker, you'll see how fellow leaders are turning their passion into purpose.
