The purpose of Leaders' Council is to bring together leaders of various student organizations to promote student leadership development at Ohio Northern University by:
· Providing avenues for potential and current leaders with leadership resources
· Serving as a student advisory board for the Office of Student Involvement.
· Coordinating with the Office of Student Involvement, organizational and individual leadership programs.
The council was formed in 2002 as an outcome of a University-leadership taskforce with the intention to promote leadership development at Ohio Northern University. Since then, Leaders’ Council has brought many leadership programs to campus, from leadership speakers like Larry Banaszak, Steve Gilliland, and Joseph Williams. Leaders' Council plans and runs organizational workshops that target group communication and membershipdevelopment. Leaders' Council also hosts the Annual Networking Dinner as a means to facilitate cooperation across various student organizations, and their Annual Leadership Week each Spring. We also offer individual leadership development workshops with The Leadership Experience (LX) program, as well as full group training through organizational retreat workshops. The council is continuously expanding both aspects of organizational and individual leadership development, offering newer workshops and developing more innovative leadership programs. Whether it is organizing a leadership seminar or facilitating a goal-setting and planning session, Leaders’ Council will work closely with your group in determining topics that specifically target your organization’s need.
