Graduate Student Leadership Development Program

By Kelsey Peterson

The Graduate Student Leadership Development Program provides K-State graduate students an opportunity to develop leadership skills to make a positive change in your work, studies and student organizations. Through this 10-week experience, you will work with leadership studies faculty and your peers to dive into challenges that are most important to you. The Staley School of Leadership Studies, the Graduate School, and the Kansas Leadership Center have created this program specifically for graduate students who want to move beyond technical expertise to solve problems.

Program participants will:

  • Attend three workshops with leadership studies faculty and learn from and support their peers in three monthly peer consultation meetings.
  • Understand how to facilitate change in self, others and community.
  • Exercise leadership on difficult challenges in personal and professional settings.
  • Receive access to resources from the Kansas Leadership Center.

Participation is open to graduate students in all disciplines. Graduate students who have had no leadership experience to those who have filled numerous leadership roles, to everyone in between is welcome to apply for this program. If selected to participate, you must be available to participate in all program activities.
