As life-long learners, students are strongly encouraged to participate in the variety of leadership development programs offered at Georgetown University. Whether one is exploring new leadership theories and models, or developing skills to strengthen their leadership within an organization, there are multiple opportunities to grow in one’s understanding of self and others from a leadership lens. Below are just a few of many leadership programs offered on campus.
The Center for Student Engagement, in collaboration with key student partners, offers a full curriculum encompassing a study of leadership theory, styles and practical opportunities. Through workshops, retreats and seminars, students are given the framework and tools to effectively engage with their communities through traditional and non-traditional leadership roles. Our goal is to meet the needs of students at each stage of their experience, beginning with Leadership and Beyond, a pre-orientation program for first-year and transfer students, through a reflection publication written and edited by seniors.
Leaders in Education About Diversity (LEAD) is a dynamic peer education and leadership development program. LEADers seek to educate themselves and others about diversity and intersections of identity in order to build common ground across the Georgetown.
The Peer Mentoring Program is geared toward helping first-year and transfer students ease their transition into the Georgetown community.
