It’s the start of a new school year and the Wilks Leadership Institute is gearing up for an exciting year! Over the last two weeks, we’ve made appearances at new student orientation, Mega Fair, the Resident Assistant Resource Fair and have already had two open houses for students to come and learn more about the Institute and get involved in what we do. Tomorrow, September 1st, we have our last Open House from 10 am – 12 noon in our office, Warfield Hall 109 (on the first floor). FREE food!
Can’t make it to the Open House? No problem – go to our website (http://www.muohio.edu/wilks) and learn more about our programs and events. Now is a great time to apply for our High School Leadership Program. We are currently accepting applications for those students interested in becoming a High School Leadership Coach. The program allows Miami students to develop their own leadership skills while helping high school students identify, understand, and take steps toward solving a community issue that is important to them. Through this process, coaches empower high school students to develop their own leadership skills and ability to make change in their communities. To learn more about the program and to view the application check out our website: http://community.muohio.edu/wilks/. Applications are due Monday, September 12th at 5:00 pm. If you have any questions, please e-mail High School Leadership Program Coordinator, Justin Woodard at email@example.com.
This year we are also excited and busy preparing for our future events and initiatives, including the monthly dialogue series Lessons in Leadership, Scholar Leader recruitment, the annual Regional High School Leadership Conference, and collaboration with the Social Action Center. Keep your eyes open for updates about our events!
We hope to see you there! In the meanwhile, be sure to find our bedsheet banners all around campus!
