Student Leadership and Professional Competencies

Student Leadership & Professional Competencies

A student engaged through Student Leadership and Involvement will be exposed to a variety of experiences that will enhance what they learn in the classroom. Student Leadership & Involvement and Career Services has identified the following learning clusters that our students should strive to develop in through their varied experiences.
