Being an officer of a club is an opportunity to learn about leadership and collaboration, as well as communication and the challenges of balancing diverse responsibilities. Preparation in this arena can serve a student for life, from learning how to engage in the work place to being involved in community organizations, and learning responsibilities ranging from managing conflict to serving as a fiscal steward. Opportunities in PLHRT 4975 will vary, based on specific club commitments; in general, leadership development includes, and is not limited to, learning how to: foster inclusiveness and a healthy, positive social atmosphere among members; promote an interest in the club's mission, vision and values; communicate and collaborate effectively with staff, faculty advisors, and other faculty, staff, administrators and students; and maintain the reputation, continuity and history of a Cornell organization.
