Attend the Catalyst Leadership Development Program

The Higdon Center for Student Leadership is hosting Catalyst, a one-day program set for Saturday, March 7, in the Stern Center Ballroom from 9:30am-4:00pm (lunch provided) that will push you to get real with yourself about the life-long process of learning, exploration, and action. At the end of this experience, you should leave compelled to start a new habit, to persist, and/or to live in possibility.

You will:

  • Engage in learning. Showing up is only part of participating. Participants will challenge themselves to do something different to help their learning. Catalyst will be about taking ownership of learning and what can be accomplished in community with others.
  • Connect with ideas and people. Participants will have time to get to know other people and listen to their thoughts. It is rare to have the space to connect with other people and what they truly care about in the world. The Catalyst curriculum creates a community that welcomes that opportunity.
  • Craft your personal story. Where have you been? Who are you? What labels have you adopted that help tell your story? We are constantly writing our life’s story. We will take some time to think about what stories have been learned along the way and how personal development has occurred. When we tell our story, we allow others to see us in a different way. We also make it a little easier for them to tell their story. Let’s have courage and be brave together to share stories and listen to the stories of others.
  • Expand your perspective. If you continue to do what you have always done, you can’t really expect different results. Catalyst will challenge participants to think out of the box. Ask “why” more often. Quietly reflect on choices and the path so far… and then look further. We do not know everything we think we know. Catalyst will encourage participants to engage curiosity and remain open to a different way of seeing the world.

The program is capped at 60 people, so don’t wait to apply here!
