Fall Leadership Institute 2019
August 26-27

Are you excited to start a new leadership position this fall? Are you interested in learning more about leadership and opportunities for the future? If so, then you will not want to miss the 2019 Fall Leadership Institute! The Fall Leadership Institute (FLI), sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs, is a one and a half day leadership conference opportunity for all undergraduate students, including those who are involved in clubs and organizations or are student staff members interested in furthering their leadership development.
       
This year we are excited to launch a new format that includes a one-day conference that focuses on developing your leadership skills and a second half-day focused on event planning and club management logistics.

If you are living on campus for the 2019-2020 academic year and you sign up to attend FLI by 12:00pm on July 29, you will be eligible to move into your room early.

We look forward to seeing you at FLI in August! If you have any questions, please email campuslife@stthomas.edu

Join us for a day of developing your leadership qualities, opportunities to map your leadership path, and time to connect and collaborate with other student leaders on campus. This will not be your typical sit and listen lecture. This day will provide two leadership development workshops in the morning and in the afternoon to give participants the opportunity to practice what they learn in each session.

Whether you are a returning or new leader in your club or organization, the second day of the Fall Leadership Institute provides a one-stop event for you to learn about all of the resources you will need to manage your club. This day will provide an opportunity to cover new or changed policies from the previous year, meet with university staff that you will work with when planning an event, learn who to use the various university systems, and have an opportunity to connect with other club leaders. Here are some of the breakout session that will be provided:

  • Club Management: Recruiting, delegation, and maintaining membership 

  • Tommie Link Training (Club Info, Managing Roster, Creating Events) 

  • Community Engagement/Volunteer Projects 

  • 25live and Room Reservations

  • "The most valuable thing that I picked up was that our different experiences that have shaped our lives will also shape our communication styles. Sometimes the communication styles will not mesh but rather than getting frustrated we should work harder so understanding is achieved"
  • "Learning to think critically about service and the more long term justice impacts service can have as we look to advance the common good. Service and our tagline can be something easily written off as not controversial, but it really requires that critical thinking aspect in order to truly advance the common good."
  • "I loved being able to discuss different topics with other leaders on campus. It was refreshing to have an open dialogue about lots of different topics.
  • "Most valuable thing I learned from this experience was how aware we need to be as to our choice of words and how we say things.
  • "I learned how to embrace good leadership skills and the power of the mind overall."
