The Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence and the Schreyer Honors College are collaborating to present the Academic Contributions to Student Leadership Development Conference, Monday, September 12, 2011. This conference is intended to broaden the way we think about leadership—what it is, how one becomes a leader, and what the Penn State community can do to develop leadership through our teaching and learning. There are many different kinds of leadership, and there are just as many different paths and approaches to get there. We want to explore how the Penn State community nurtures and expands the view and role of leadership both in and out of the classroom.
Participants will explore Penn State resources for student leadership education, as well as the complexity of leadership in general and develop a broad perception of leadership. Participants will experience leadership through models of teaching and learning that are encouraged by the Schreyer Institute.
Just as there is no one type of leadership, there is no one path to encouraging our students, faculty and staff to be leaders. This conference is intended to look at leadership with a broad yet cohesive eye that includes and fosters involvement of all campuses, faculty and students, including both undergraduate and graduate.
