Student Leadership Academy

Spring 2015 Session: February 2 - April 2

Student Leadership Academy is designed to help you develop valuable skills your future employers are looking for: communication, motivation, goal setting and presentation skills. If you're looking to build your resume, meet new people and show that you have more than just a good grade point average, then Student Leadership Academy is for you. No previous leadership experience is necessary.

Two academy tracks now available:

How It Works

  • Personal Leadership sessions are offered on Mondays and Thursdays
  • Career Development sessions are offered on Tuesdays and Wednesdays
  • Sessions in both tracks are offered at Kent State University at Stark and Stark State College
  • You can choose to attend sessions in one specific track, or you can choose sessions from both tracks to meet your own personal needs
  • Kent State Stark students are permitted to attend sessions at Stark State College, and vice versa
  • Sessions are 50 minutes long unless otherwise indicated

What You Gain
