This year’s Student Leadership Academy will be held on Saturday, August 27-Sunday, August 28, 2022 from 7:00am-6:00pm on both days. Students will participate in various workshops instructed by university and community professionals. In addition, students will receive their academy group and wingman assignments.
Student teams will be led by academy graduates throughout the year as the academy is designed to encourage student leadership with “students leading students.” The wingman will serve as a partner throughout the academy so that students learn to encourage and support each other.
Student leaders will model professional behavior, practice effective communication, maintain positive teamwork, encourage students to meet academic standards, and work with their teams to achieve deadlines before their sophomore year.
Student leaders provide meaningful opportunities to share their experiences of success and failures in nursing school. They mirror success by volunteering their time to lead, support, and develop their teams.
