Sophomore Leadership Institute

The Sophomore Leadership Institute started at St.Olaf this fall and the group has had a great first month of meetings!

The Sophomore Leadership Institute - or "SLI" - is a group of 16 sophomores interested in developing and enhancing leadership skills and talking about issues around student leadership. The group meets formally about once a month.

September's meeting was focused on defining leadership and talking about what it means to be a sophomore and a student leader at St.Olaf. October will be devoted to working with the Center for Experiential Learning on personality traits of leaders, as well as exploring civic engagement possibilities and ways to incorporate others sophomores into what the group is doing.

The 2010 (and first EVER) Sophomore Leadership Institute group...
