Students Learn to Lead At Leadership Forum

October 143, 2011 | Chase Replogle

In a continued effort to educate and prepare student leaders on campus, Evangel University recently hosted the 6th annual Student Leadership Forum in Trask Hall. Over 170 students learned from various EU staff and faculty members as well as local EU alumni about effectively leading organizations at Evangel and how they can become better leaders in the future. The event was sponsored by LifeWorks: The Center for Leadership and Life Calling.

During the Student Leadership Forum, students had opportunities to gain insight into the challenges and rewards of leadership, along with other focus areas like financial well-being, team-building and more. Students participated in both general group sessions and break-out sessions focusing on various subject areas.

Students also had an opportunity to hear from Evangel University’s President, Dr. Robert H. Spence, as he spoke from personal experience about the importance of being involved in one’s community and developing leadership skills to be productive community members. Many of the students who were in attendance are also participants in Evangel’s Leadership Scholar Program.

“Evangel’s student leaders are committed to growth,” forum organizer and Assistant Professor of Organizational Leadership Alina Lehnert said. “The forum not only inspires, but also provides practical leadership skill development. Maximizing students’ strengths is what we do best in the leadership program.”
