leadership advisory board members at their 2018 summer retreat

 

Leadership Advisory Board (LAB) is the premiere leadership board on campus, facilitating educational programs and workshops on leadership, personal and professional development, teambuilding, and other special topics for interested organizations, campus departments, and academic classes. The primary goal is to increase awareness of how to be an effective leader, work as a team, and create a dialogue that explores campus involvement and perception of leadership.

 

LAB commits to ensuring that all UWG students grow as student and professional leaders and take action by:

  • Creating an environment where students can grow and learn about themselves

  • Increasing appreciation in differences
