Launching into Leadership
This introductory leadership program encourages student involvement on campus by recognizing participation in events throughout a number of categories. Participating students will immerse themselves into Penn State DuBois opportunities in the areas of community service, intellectual programming, multicultural/diversity awareness, personal awareness, and social programming. Students will be expected to break out of their comfort zones in order to build upon leadership traits that they have, as well as form new ones, in this introductory leadership program.
We Learn. We Lead. We Are.
This program is a three part series that will be implemented in Spring 2021 for Penn State DuBois students to hone in on their leadership skills.

Orientation Leaders (OLs) are chosen through an application process which closes in March. Those chosen will participate in multiple trainings and workshops throughout the summer and end by representing our campus at New Student Orientation in August. OLs serve as leaders, group facilitators, and role-models to first year students and their families and guests in an effort to provide a seamless transition to Penn State DuBois. Being an OL opens students up to a world of leadership opportunities, and often leads to leadership among clubs, serving as FYS Leaders, and other recognition or awards.
