Cameron offers many structured opportunities to learn more about leadership theories and your leadership style. This is also a great way to discuss issues that you may have with other campus leaders.
The CU Leadership Academy is a program that rewards students that synthesize the various aspects of leadership: community service, personal development, organization involvement, and evaluation of. In order to complete the program, students must:
- Complete 10 hours of community service (must be logged here: http://www.cameron.edu/activities/communityservice/studenthub)
- Attend 3 (three) CU Succeed Workshops
- Be an officer in a registered and active campus organization
- Meet with the Student Activities Office Staff to discuss the leadership lessons learned.
Students are able to complete the CU Leadership Academy each semester and will be acknowledged at the University Awards Ceremony in April. Additionally, students will be eligible to attend a recognition lunch at the end of the year.
Leadership Book Discussion
The Leadership Book Discussion is another opportunity for leadership development. A group of 8-12 students meet once a month throughout the semester to discuss a prescribed book. Books may highlight a specific leader and their leadership style or include helpful hints on a specific type of leadership. Previous books have included:
- Creating Magic: 10 Common Sense Leadership Strategies from a Life at Disney by Lee Cockerell
- Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap...and Others Don't by Jim Collins
Participants receive a copy of the book for them to keep. Students that attend all sessions will be recognized at the University Awards Ceremony in April.
