Leadership Firesides, GEN ST 391I
The Husky Leadership Initiative is excited to once again offer the Leadership Firesides course in Winter Quarter 2018.
Husky Leadership Initiative Leadership Firesides offer ongoing opportunities for students to engage in meaningful dialogue with a diverse range of civic, corporate and campus leaders in an informal setting. These leaders share their personal journeys and perspectives on leadership and become momentary mentors for students attending the event. The Firesides are a way for students to learn more about and reflect on leadership and build their leadership competence and confidence.
Those registered for the course will meet weekly in attending these events. The class will also include an introductory session (Week 1) and a closing session (Week 10). Students will be required to reflect on the presentations each week and will submit these reflections via Canvas.
To register: No add code required. Register for GEN ST 391I . 1 credit (CR/NC).
