Leadership Launch

Contact Jenny 
Leadership Launch is designed to foster leadership of newer members within student organizations and emerging first and second-year leaders in the CSM community. It also serves to provide students with the opportunity to develop the necessary skills to become leaders on campus, in their professions, and in their own communities.

About the Program

The Leadership Launch Program promotes personal development and leadership skills. The 2013-2014 academic year marks the 13th Anniversary for the program. This joint venture between the Office of Student Leadership & Organizations and the Office of Residence Life provides a dualistic approach to discussing the leadership topics covered in Leadership Launch. Graduates of the program have gone on to lead or start several student organizations on campus, or take on other leadership roles, like being a Resident Advisor (RA) in the residence halls.

Learning Outcomes for Leadership Launch

  • Cultivate personal leadership skills and invoke those leadership skills when necessary
  • Articulate in detail the leadership skills they possess and how they use those skills
  • Value an open and free exchange of ideas
  • Actively engage in opportunities to be leaders within the community and see the value in it
  • Apply newly gained leadership skills in and out of the classroom
