Part of the University of Iowa’s definition of student success is “becoming an effective leader.”

During your time here, you will have opportunities to lead others in a team or group setting or lead yourself towards your goals and future.

All of these experiences provide you a chance to learn about your personal leadership style, while also putting to practice and developing different leadership skills.

With so many diverse ways to get involved and lead, you might do this through a leadership course, leading in a student club or organization, or as part of an on-campus job like serving as a Resident Assistant. Any of these opportunities will help you grow and develop to be a better student, employee, leader, and Hawkeye.

Start getting involved as a leader across campus by scheduling an Engagement Advising Appointment. Through these one-on-one advising appointments, you will be able to learn of the many avenues students take to get involved and develop as leaders on campus. Additionally, you can get connected with networks, mentors, and programs that can help you achieve your leadership goals.
