  • Leadership Development Opportunities at Carlow University

    The Office of Student Activities partners with staff, faculty, and community leaders to develop a variety of leadership development opportunities for students, including the following programs: 

    Leadership Consultations

    Individual Leaders, Small Groups, and Organization Consultations

    The staff of the Office of Student Activities (OSA) is available for consultations with individual student leaders, with small groups of leaders, and with entire student organizations about ideas, concerns, and/or challenges the leader or group faces with their role(s) as a leader or member within their student organization. This service is not individual counseling or group intervention, rather it is an opportunity for the leader or group to bounce ideas or ask for a different viewpoint about a situation happening within the organization. 

    To make an appointment, please contact Christopher Meaner, Director of Student Activities, via email at meanercm@carlow.edu or call 412.578.6069. 

    Organization President's Council

    This group of leadership peers meets regularly to discuss the hapennings, opportunities, and challenges of leadership and to collaboratively plan events, seek funding, and promote events and opportunities for involvement. 

    For more information, please contact the OSA at 412.578.6069 or the Student Government Association at 412.578.8825.

    Student Organization Officer and Event Training

    Each semester, the OSA offers training to new leaders about planning and staging events on campus, identifying funding, and recruiting members. 

    For more information, please contact the OSA at 412.578.6069. 

    Off-Campus Conferences

    Throughout the year, the Office of Student Activities, Student Government Association, and academic departments offer opportunities for student leaders to attend conferences both locally and nationally. Watch for announcements on myPortal or check in with the OSA for more information.

    Focus on Leaders

    Faculty, staff, and fellow students are able to nominate student leaders to be profiled here. A new student will be selected each month from the pool of nominees by the Director of Student Activities. Carlow University is fortunate to have a group of such accomplished student leaders and is pleased to honor them.
