Leadership Development Opportunities
The Office of Student Affairs has created a Student Organization Canvas Site to offer you an easier and more accessible way to find the trainings and resources required of you and your organization leaders. You will find resources for your organization around topics of funding resources, DEI plans, organizational transitions, and more.
The Office of Student Affairs hosts several leadership development workshops each semester that are free to all students active within student organizations. CoE SSO executive board members are required to attend at least two workshops, per person, per academic year. Information about these events can be found on the CoE Student Org Deadline Calendar.
For students who cannot attend the leadership development workshops hosted through OSA or who are looking for other opportunities, events and workshops through the following offices have been pre-approved for use as semesterly workshops for student leaders:
**Please note, if you are a CoE SSO executive board member who is attending one of the workshops that is not on the CoE Student Org Deadline Calendar, then you will need to send a couple sentence reflection to Mariah Fiumara on your experience at your leadership training session in order to receive credit.**
If a student leader feels they have found an event or workshop that fits the learning goals that are identified through OSA for leaders of student organizations, they are encouraged to reach out to Mariah Fiumara about the potential to count this for their required workshops.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
CoE Sponsored Student Organizations (SSOs) are asked to create 2-year DEI strategic plans for their organizations that addresses a specific area of diversity or identity within engineering. Information on how to create this plan can be found on the Student Organization Training canvas site. SSOs will be asked to meet with ADE members and OSA staff at least twice a year to review their plans.
Additionally, students and student organizations can bring issues and concerns of equity and inclusion to the Advocates of Diversity in Engineering (ADE), who are a student group devoted to bringing DEI concepts and issues to the forefront of all engineering work at Michigan. Students who would like to share experiences within the Wilson Center are able to do so in the Wilson Center Suggestion Box.
