From the beginning of their college experience, students can (and should) begin to cultivate the knowledge and skills that enable them to become effective leaders and citizens. As an educator, you certainly want them to exhibit leadership and citizenship on your campus; but more importantly, you want to prepare them to step confidently into those roles after they graduate.

In the webinar featured below, Dr. Britt Andreatta, author of Cengage Learning’s Navigating the Research University: A Guide for First-Year Students, Third Edition, provides strategies for weaving leadership and citizenship into your first-year seminar and beyond. She shares examples of how she and her colleagues developed leadership opportunities on their campuses, and discusses how these skills and experiences can connect to students’ career development. You’ll also learn about leadership development models and practices that have proven successful with the students with whom Dr. Andreatta has worked. And, in addition, you’ll gather some ideas for promoting leadership development on your campus.
