Leadership education initiatives in CALS grew out of the efforts of CALS undergraduate students. In 2003 the officers of the CALS Student Council requested that the College develop a leadership program for students. Since that time faculty and staff in the College, working with the Student Council, have developed a one-credit fall-semester leadership seminar, sponsored winter leadership retreats, and obtained a USDA grant to train groups of students to facilitate workshops on leadership topics.
Leadership education is an important component of students’ overall development and career preparation. The links below describe the opportunities CALS students have to learn about, and practice, leadership.
