This November, the Office of Student Leadership Development is launching the #NoTitleNeeded Campaign. We’ve based the mission of our office AND the way we connect with students on the firm belief that being a leader isn’t based on having a title, position, or authority.
The PRACTICE of leadership is open to anyone. It involves the desire to work with others to create positive change in the communities and causes we care about.
But it’s hard to break free of those assumptions that someone with the title or position of leader is going to come forward and start the positive change. Too often, we wait for the “leader” to start. Or if we are the “leaders” we spend too much time doing it all on our own and not figuring out ways to engage others significantly. With our #NoTitleNeeded efforts, we want to elevate the concept that the practice of leadership is open to all.
Check out the schedule overview for #NoTitleNeeded and we hope you’ll engage with us throughout the month and share your own thoughts.
Follow us on Social Media and consider participating in our #NoTitleNeeded Campaign. You can have your own contribution documented to #NoTitleNeeded at the Sadler Center during lunch hours November 10th—14th OR anytime during the month on twitter or Instagram.
At the least, we hope you’ll think about what it means for you, the way you work with others, and our collective opportunities to create positive change.
