We recognize that the spirit of Going West includes the desire to lead others toward new ideas and amazing success. We've designed our Leadership Programs to respond to and encourage students who want to learn to lead effectively. Our program offers a variety of opportunities for gaining the experience and developing the skills you'll need as a leader. Regardless of your current level of leadership ability or experience, we have programs and training to take you to the next level of your development. You will find descriptions of the leadership programs we currently offer below.



Leadership To Go

Leadership To Go is a leadership development program designed for UWG student leaders. These workshops are designed to fit in with and complement the busy schedule and lifestyle of the UWG leader. Programs will be no longer than one hour, giving you valuable yet concise information which leaders can use immediately. Resources will be ready-to-go and easy-to-use. Topics encompass the wide range of skills and information needed to be a successful leader.

The Fall 2013 Leadership To Go schedule is currently available. Click here to see information about our new Leadership Tracks and the Leadership To Go workshop schedule.
