SUNY Brockport offers many opportunities for students who are interested in developing their leadership skills.
The skills you obtain from these opportunities will be useful in all aspects of life after graduation.
The Leadership Development Program (LDP) offers students the opportunity to engage in a variety of experiences that have been shown to have a significant impact on student’s ability to display leadership. The LDP offers five different certificates, in which the student progresses through as long as they continue to participate in the program.
The Peer Mentoring Program offered at the University, allows Freshman students to learn from a peer, as well as faculty. Some students find it easier to learn from somebody closer to their demographic, especially in their first year at the University. Peer Mentors know exactly what a Freshman is going through, and offer another outlet for Freshman to reach out to with any issues or concerns they may have their Freshman year.
Officer Role in the Biology Honors Club and Pre-Professional Health Club
Joining one of the clubs on campus and earning your way up the ladder to an officer role is one of the most important ways of developing leadership skills. Students have learned from previous officers what it takes to lead and what is expected of them for their club. Many students who join a club as a Freshman and stick with it throughout their university career, often end up becoming an officer and leader in their Junior or Senior year. A new Officer Leadership Certificate is now available through the Leadership Development Program.
