The Leadership Institute is raising money on Day of Giving to support the Student Leadership Council. SLC is the gateway to cocurricular leadership involvement, letting students apply what they learn in the classroom with hands-on experience. With your gifts, we can empower other students to get involved with planning and executing various leadership events that meet the interests and goals of the students we serve. SLC students build leadership skills like communication, collaboration, peer mentorship, prioritization and more.
The Leadership Institute develops students into ethical and intentional leaders who value diversity. We are effective in today's changing society by cultivating the study of leadership and facilitating transformational learning experiences designed to challenge, motivate and inspire. We create the ideal Washburn leadership experience by empowering students to practice and refine their leadership skills both inside and outside the classroom. Inside the classroom, students can earn a leadership minor or certificate. Outside the classroom, students practice leadership through cocurricular, transformational experiences on campus and in the community by applying the skills they learned to make a positive impact.
Your generous donations will help the SLC offer hands-on experiences and programs to hone students’ leadership skills so they may become effective leaders and change agents in their workplaces and communities. Our goal is to raise $5,000 for the Student Leadership Council.
“SLC has been a transformational experience giving multiple opportunities not only to grow as a leader, but as a person. I will be able to take these leadership application pieces and apply them to real-world situations, something I cannot experience anywhere else.” - Lily Thompson, Junior
“SLC has given me the opportunity to learn about myself, understand my leadership style and develop myself as a leader going into the real world. It is a platform for experience which can and will prove to be valuable down the road.” - Samuel Pollom, Senior
