Leadership Exchange Programs

The Leadership Exchange is a series of skill building workshops for students. These workshops available for student organizations, resident advisors, and any other group or class that would like to request us. In addition to the scheduled programs, you can request a workshop for your entire group or for your executive board. 

For questions contact Molly Salisbury and/or Joey Kimes.

The workshop topics are below. Most workshops can be adapted to run between 15 minutes and one hour, unless otherwise noted.

Communication: Communication is key in helping any group be successful. Learn some communication strategies and ways to improve how you work with others.

Contracting/Programming: Do you need to know more about developing a large campus program? This workshop will help student organizations develop a plan if they are trying to bring a large campus program or need some help knowing how to get through the process.

Game of Life/Game of Oppression: Our staff, along with the Creighton Intercultural Center, can facilitate a game that will help your members reflect on power, privilege, and diversity. A large group (30+) is needed for the Game of Life. The Game of Oppression is best played with groups of 15 or less. One to two hours are needed for both games.

Student Org 101: Does your organization have questions about the policies and procedures for student organizations? In this workshop, we will discuss the various policies and procedures for student organizations, including all of the forms in the Student Leadership & Involvement Center that student organizations need to use. This is a great workshop for a new executive board.

Team Building and Ice Breakers: Having trouble coming up with your own teambuilders? Need an outside facilitator to help your team grow? This workshop will help students bond together as a team and learn how to communicate more clearly with one another.
