About

“You Have to Know Who You Are and Convince Everyone Else of What You Do.” –This was our motto for the 2013-2014 school year. In fall of 2012 we were given the opportunity to create a brand new unit within the Office of the Dean of Students. A standalone Office of Student Leadership Development would be a new adventure within our division. Our doors opened in May 2013 and in May 2016 we will celebrate three years as an office.  Join me as I tell you about journey and provide you with detailed information including key documents and best practices that guided our development process. This session is for anyone who is faced with a similar task or is looking for a way to refresh, reframe, and rethink their current work.
