Leadership Labs

Kick-start your leadership journey here! Drop in on workshops and events geared towards your personal and professional development.

Purpose
Make connections. Improve team projects. Get through midterms and exams. ILead’s Leadership Labs teach you these and other practical skills that you can apply at SkuleTM and beyond. Our fun and interactive workshops run throughout the year.  Spend three weeknights with us to dive deeper into a theme area or attend individual workshops that pique your interest. Either way, you’ll gain important skills and meet great people. Also offered a few times each semester, our Chart Your Future workshop helps you to clarify your own path and move towards the opportunities that will help you get there.

Great For
Anyone looking to begin their leadership learning, to develop new skills, or to meet new people. Also great for PEY students who want to increase their workplace readiness by gaining professional development.

Time Commitment
1.5 – 10 hours/semester from September to April.
