Exploring Leadership is offered as a First Year Seminar course for students in the Student Leadership Scholars program, and in each spring semester for all students.
Emerging Leaders is a semester long program offered by the Office of Student Activities. In seminar style workshops students develop and build upon previous leadership experience and learn how to apply it at Lasell College. Weekly sessions feature an array of topics including public speaking, diversity, ethical decision making, balance, goal setting, teamwork, and leadership opportunities on campus. These workshops are designed to build skills and develop the foundation for leadership roles.
Emerging Leaders is offered in both the fall and spring semesters for all students.
