Throughout the academic year, the Student Leadership Program offers multiple lecture and/or workshops focusing on leadership skills.

Contact Deb Smith, director of Wellness and Recreation, at or 603-271-6484 x4314 for more information.

Each year, we coordinate a retreat for current students, advisors, and members of the Student Leadership Team to gather for a day of leadership development. Typically, the day is spent at an off-campus location where students can network with one another and learn new skills while mastering existing skills. The retreat focuses on a variety of leadership skills including communication, collaboration, and teambuilding.
