These hour-long, interactive workshops are held regularly throughout the year on a wide-variety of topics, including defining personal values, finding common purpose, working through conflict, exploring the influence of personal identities, and more!
Leadership Certificate Program
The AU LEAD Leadership Certificate Program is an in-depth exploration of leadership, based on the Social Change Model of Leadership Development and designed for all students with any level of past leadership experience.
