Twice a month the LIVE Office hosts a local leader to speak to students about their experiences with leadership. This is a great opportunity for students to not only grow in their leadership abilities but also to build personal connections with local Fairbanks leaders. Such networking can open many doors both personal and career wise.
Our Leadership Lunches have ended for the spring semester, but we are currently looking for Fall 2014 speakers. Have someone in mind? Send us their name and we'll do the rest, at email@example.com.
As part of the LIVE program's continuing Leadership Workshop Series we are proud to present leadership workshops to assist leadership development for club officers and personal growth of the entire student body.
These workshop will count towards your COLD Leadership certificate. Not signed up for COLD? Find more about it online here.
Our workshops have ended for the Spring 14 semester but keep your eyes peeled for more next fall!
Leadership Book Club:
The LIVE Program started Leadership Bookclubs this semester to open up a discussion of leadership in current, popular books.
During the Spring 14 semester we read:
Bossypants by Tina Fey
I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai
Look for the Book Club next fall! If you have any suggestions please email us, firstname.lastname@example.org
Leadership Movie Nights
As part of our mission to highlight leadership in current media we have started movie nights to see recently release movies with a discussion of their leadership components following. This semester we watched:
Lone Survivor - war movie chronicling the events surronding the failed United States Navy SEALs counter-insurgent mission Operation Red Wing and the story of Marcus Luttrell, the lone survivor.
A Place at the Table - a documentary about food insecurity and the serious implications that hunger poses in America.
Watch for more awesome movie nights this fall!
We offer a number of opportunities for emerging to experienced leaders to expand their leadership toolboxes; join us for our annual UAF Leadership Conference or participate in one of our monthly leadership development activities where you will have the opportunity to interact with campus and community leaders and reflect on your own leadership experiences.
