Tate Leadership Scholars
Tate Leadership Scholars is a leadership development program for rising second- and third-year leaders (positional or non-positional) within student organizations that do not have direct advising support within Student Affairs. The program curriculum addresses four core areas of knowledge and skill development: (1) individual leadership development and education, (2) organizational networking and collaboration, (3) environmental awareness and understanding, (4) civic-mindedness and engagement.
Students will attend biweekly seminars throughout the 2017-2018 academic year. The Fall 2017 semester will be focused on personal leadership development and the journey for each scholar to discover, identify, and articulate their passion. Spring will integrate each scholar’s passion and move toward enacting purpose through a “passion project”. Each scholar will be guided to apply their passion into the form of a product that enhances the community, internally to either the University of Georgia or the greater Athens-Clarke County community. Scholars will present their passion project and the steps towards enacting the project at the end of the 2017-2018 academic year. Additionally, Tate Leadership Scholars will have periodic one-on-one meetings with the activity director(s) and will participate in the Collegiate Leadership Conference on February 3, 2018. Over the 2017-2018 academic year, Tate Leadership Scholars can expect to commit 65+ hours to the program.
