Writing Center director encourages advisees by sharing her own struggles
Leadership isn’t handed to you. It’s learned, and it’s earned. Clark supplies many opportunities to drive positive change in the university community and beyond. You just have to embrace them.
Never underestimate the impact of serving a cause beyond yourself. At Clark, you will connect with a community to work toward common goals, and in the process build your own leadership and communication skills. By participating in student organizations, volunteering in the city, and collaborating with partners both on and off campus, you help fulfill Clark’s mission to make a difference in the world.
Lead the Way
Take advantage of Clark’s fall and spring Leadership Summits, which help student club leaders — and those who aspire to become leaders — acquire lifelong skills in collaboration, inclusivity, and communication in our diverse world.
Emerging Leaders Institute
If your goal is to become a campus leader — a resident adviser, peer adviser, mentor, club officer, employee, or another role — you can apply for the Emerging Leaders Institute (ELI). The summit includes field trips, activities, and group discussions that explore the meaning of leadership. Students completing the program receive certificates and recommendation for leadership positions on campus. For more information, contact Kamaro Abubakar, assistant director of campus life.
Millennium Leadership Conference
The Millennium Leadership Conference provides a space for socially conscious leaders within the Worcester community to combat and challenge social justice issues. This year’s conference is “Unapologetically Living Our Stories: What Does it Mean to Live Purposefully?”
