A team of student leadership ambassadors, along with a staff advisor, lead the initiative for leadership education on campus. Reflective of leadership topics in higher education and in accordance with the mission statement of Eureka College, the team of Leadership Ambassadors provide leadership programming for all students in the form of an annual conference, workshops, and discussion sessions.
Mission of Leadership Ambassadors
The Eureka College Leadership Ambassadors will strive to promote leadership excellence on campus for students through student organizational leadership support and leadership education. Leadership Ambassadors will remain informed and prepared and educate themselves on current leadership skills, theories and models to best serve and prepare students for being dynamic, ethical leaders of the world.
Fall 2015 Leadership Conference
This educational opportunity is open to all students. This year’s theme is All Aboard the Leadership: Strengthening the Potential of you and your Crew. The conference will feature guest speakers, Eileen Ruby-Setti and Harriett Steinbach, speaking about the StrengthsFinder assessment.
Friday, November 13, 5:30–10pm
Saturday, November 14, 9am–12pm
Again this year, there are two tracks available to students, one for undergraduates, and a senior/alumni track option intended for graduating seniors. Students and alumni will have the opportunity to take the StrengthsFinder assessment and participate in a joint keynote session Saturday focusing on how this tool can be useful for leadership growth and learning.
**While recognized campus organizations are encouraged to send as many members as possible, groups are required to send a minimum of two students to the conference as the sole representatives of their organization.**
The Leadership Ambassador Team meets weekly to plan the annual conference and other campus leadership offerings and to discuss leadership topics/issues relevant to their work in promoting leadership education on campus. Recruitment for new leadership ambassadors takes place early in the spring semester along with the selection of our two representatives to attend the LeaderShape Institute.
Please contact any member of the Leadership Ambassador Team with questions about the conference, other programming, and membership opportunities.
