STUDENT LEADERSHIP WEEKEND
34th Annual Leadership Weekend: Start With Why
Baruch's Annual Leadership Weekend is designed to maximize the relationship between learning about leadership and practicing leadership. Understanding leadership primarily in a classroom setting does not give many of us an opportunity to put our learning into practice.
During Leadership Weekend, each participant is given multiple opportunities to practice leadership with their peers under the direct supervision of trainers. This is an immersion experience where students will have an opportunity to explore their values, participate in team building and group decision making, improve communication and develop leadership skills. Through open dialogue and trainer feedback, participants will be able to make connections between various leadership experiences and develop their unique leadership style.
The theme for the 34th Annual Student Leadership Weekend was based off of a quote from leadership expert Simon Sinek, "The more organizations and people who learn to start with WHY, the more people there will be who wake up being fulfilled by the work they do."
Check out all the fun from Leadership Weekend 2016!
This weekend takes place every fall semester, so look for more details in September 2017.

MODEL NEW YORK STATE SENATE SESSION OPPORTUNITY
The Model New York State Senate Session Project is an annual leadership development program, a collaboration of the New York State Assembly and the Puerto Rican/Hispanic Task Force of the New York State Legislature. Each year, more than 60 CUNY and SUNY students are brought together for a series of intensive training seminars on state policy formulation, legislative processes, representation and leadership. CUNY students are selected for participation from their home campuses through the offices of their respective college presidents, provosts and student affairs officers. The seminars include visits from prominent NYS legislators and guest lecturers. The program culminates with students debating bills on the floor of the New York State Senate chamber in Albany. Participating students are also given the opportunity to compete for scholarship awards. Through participation in the process of legislative decision-making, students further their organizational, research and public speaking skills by means of a model legislative seminars. By working on a legislative agenda that they develop, the students play an integral role in their pursuit of a public service education. Moreover, they are introduced to a "hands-on" approach to involvement in the political and policy processes that affect them, their families and their communities.
