Student Leadership Opportunities

Leadership Council

The Leadership Council is composed of representatives from every student club and organization on campus and meets the first Thursday of every month from 12:30-1:15 p.m. in the Krasa Presentation Room.

Students who participate in these meetings benefit by developing networking and communication skills while promoting and advocating for their organization.

Funding Review Board

The Funding Review Board is here to help student organizations raise the money they need for an event or activity on campus. If your organization would like to appeal for funding, please complete the Funding Request Form.

Registered student organizations in good standing can make an appeal for funding before the board from 12:30-1:20 p.m. on the second and fourth Thursday of the month in the Krasa Center, Room 010C.

The Funding Review Board is composed of four students who do not currently serve on the executive boards of any student organization on campus. Students who are interested in being appointed to this board are encouraged to contact Daniel Turano at dturano@ben.edu.

BOLD

Benedictine University Opportunities for Leadership Development

BOLD offers various opportunities for students to enhance their unique skills through various leadership seminars. Seminars are divided into a four-week course and students can earn a certificate at the end of each seminar. Seminars include Leadership 101, Professional Leadership, Leadership Challenge, Diversity I and II, Servant Leadership, Benedictine Leadership and Bystander Intervention.

BOLD Programs
Leadership 101

This four-part series is designed for students who aspire to become campus leaders. Students acquire the skills they need to overcome the barriers that may get in their way. They learn the benefits of becoming a leader, discover their leadership style and build the self-confidence needed for success.

Professional Development I

Many students graduate from college unprepared for the job search that awaits them. Preparing in advance can help make you more attractive to employers and that means they are more likely to hire you. In addition to visiting the Academic and Career Enrichment Center and getting involved in extracurricular activities, students should participate in the Professional Development Series prior to graduation.
