CSL Professional Development Series

The CSL Professional Development Series provides staff with opportunities to learn about best practices in student affairs and student services, connect with peers and leaders across CSL and the University, and grow and develop professionally. It includes regular programs tailored around topics relevant to our work at the University. These programs, which occur monthly (or more), are open to all staff.

Upcoming Events

Applying the UChicagoLeads Principles to Our Practice

Presented by Jimmy Brown, Associate Director, Student Leadership Development, Center for Leadership and Involvement
Tuesday, August 22
10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Regenstein Library, Room 122
Lunch will be provided.

As our student and UChicago community needs are ever evolving, it is critical that leadership development is a shared venture, and not the sole responsibility of one department. This more collaborative understanding of leadership requires staff to cultivate boundary spanning partnerships to build more deep and pervasive cultures of leadership education on campus.
In this extended session, staff will learn about the UChicago Leads model and the leadership principles that are included.  Staff will also examine how their unit’s current programmatic offerings may connect and complement the UChicago Leads principles and explore the opportunities for additional campus collaborations.

Register here by Thursday, August 18.
