Posted on January 20, 2017

The Office of Student Activities is looking toward student leaders, staff, and faculty at MSUM to recommend students for Emerging Leaders, a program in which one can learn about leadership and one’s own leadership style.

We ask that you please share this information with potentially interested students. Emerging Leaders is great for students who do not yet see themselves as leaders. It is also a stepping stone toward the Dragon Leadership Program, typically a two-year program where students actively practice leadership through involvement experiences on campus and in the community.  Read the rest of this entry →
