Students invited to join Leadership Academy

Leadership Academy logoDo you want to become an involved student leader? Would you like the opportunity to improve your leadership skills?

If so, enroll in Student Involvement & Leadership Development’s Leadership Academy.

NIU’s Leadership Academy is a three-tiered, self-paced leadership program; participants can complete the activities as schedules allow. Through the Leadership Academy, students have the opportunity to join organizations, attend workshops, write reflections, become mentors and much more. Applications are available online.

The goal is for students to graduate from the Leadership Academy by the time they graduate from NIU.

The Leadership Academy is fun and looks great on a resume; more specifically, joining the Leadership Academy can enhance students’ applications for SILD’s yearly Kevin D. Knight Leadership Awards (which include tuition waivers).

Through the Leadership Academy, students also have an opportunity to attend various workshops each semester. Students currently in the Leadership Academy and students who have not yet joined are encouraged to attend these workshops.
