Hoo's Leading?

Hoo's Leading is a monthly leadership development series that aims to provide meaningful leadership curriculum to student organization members and officers. Advisors are also encouraged to attend. These sessions aim to improve and build upon students’ existing leadership skills and challenge them to become stronger and more effective leaders. The sessions are set up as dialogues co-lead by both staff and students. Session leaders develop curriculum, activities, and a one-sheet handout on a topic and then prepare discussion questions to facilitate dialogue and networking amongst attendees. 

Past session topics include Motivating Members (October 2017) and Delegation Skills (November 2017). Have an idea for a topic you would like to see covered in the future? Email us at
