The Office of Professional Leadership and Campus Engagement (PLACE) seeks nominations and recommendations for its leadership certification programs. These non-credit semester-long leadership development experiences will prepare students to lead on campus and in the workplace.

The emerging leaders institute (ELI) is designed to ignite and discover leadership potential while developing individual leadership skills. Offered in the fall and spring, ELI is open to all undergraduate students. Space is limited to 35 participants per semester. It is offered 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. on Wednesdays and 4:30-6 p.m. on Thursdays.

The organizational leaders institute is a training program for current and aspiring leaders of student organizations, design teams and future professional team leaders and project managers. OLI prepares undergraduate students to be stronger leaders of teams using core professional leadership skill areas. Space is limited to 30 participants. OLI meets 4:30-6 p.m. on Tuesdays.

The fall institute will cover these skill areas :

  • Administrative skills needed to assess and evaluate program and initiative effectiveness
  • Personal development and self-awareness as it relates to being a confident leader
  • Group facilitation skills essential to leading and developing training and teambuilding

To nominate students, please email Leslie Nobles, assistant director of PLACE. You can also encourage students to apply online for the emerging leaders institute or the organizational leaders institute by Tuesday, Sept. 5. Learn more about the programs at
