Student leaders from each SAP within the Office of Student Involvement gathered together on April 13th and 14th to engage with and learn from each other during the 2018 Student Leader Training. Students developed their teamwork skills on Friday evening, tackling difficult conversations surrounding diversity and inclusion, and then met within their groups to set goals for the upcoming year.
On Saturday, students were briefed on their responsibilities as leaders on the Auburn campus, and were given time to brainstorm their upcoming events and how they fit within the larger Involvement calendar. Breakout sessions in the afternoon allowed students a chance to learn more about the skills and resources that Student Involvement has available for their organizational success, and how best to utilize these. After thinking critically for the better part of two days, students left the retreat on Saturday evening with a better sense of their social responsibility on campus, as well as a greater sense of professional readiness.
