New leadership center comes to campus

BU’s new Center for Leadership and Engagement (CLE) focuses on leadership development, community engagement and student organizational support. At CLE, students gain knowledge of core leadership skill sets and enhance their co-curricular experiences through a three-level Leadership Certification Program, in which nearly 300 students are currently enrolled.

Level one includes educational workshops that focus on self-awareness, learning about others and leadership development and gets students involved in student clubs, organizations, leadership roles, athletics, arts, committees and service experiences.

In level two, students work on professional presentation and portfolio development, step up to get involved in additional student organizational events and service projects and choose to explore one of four specific leadership areas: organizational leadership, community engagement leadership, group leadership or social justice leadership.

Levels one and two can be completed sequentially or concurrently. Level three affords students the opportunity to apply what they’ve learned in levels one and two through practical out-of-classroom initiatives. Workshop topics for both level one and two will be incorporated at the Husky Student Leadership Conference on Saturday, March 8.
