The Division of Student Life has invested heavily over the last 16 months in bringing adaptive leadership training to our staff via the Michigan Model of Leadership (facilitated by the Ross School of Business). Many of you were exposed to this model at the 2017 Strategy Retreat or the 2018 Up Close and Connect Retreats. We are planning to ground much of collective work in this model this year, so want to provide an opportunity for new members of our Communities of Practice or returning folks who were unable to attend the retreats to learn the model and their color.
If you have not yet been part of this training, either because you are new to the Division or were unable to attend one of the retreats last year, we encourage you to register for one of the upcoming opportunities!

As a first-year student, figuring out what you need to do to get an internship or understanding what interests you have is hard -- 100 emoji. It’s difficult to know what employers look for or how might your interests equal a job or a major.

No worries, we designed an experience just for you.

During this 50-minute workshop, we hope to...
- Walk you through what employers look for in interns
- Help you set goals to prepare yourself to be a GREAT candidate
- Bullet point three, what’s up!?
- Debunk major and career connection
- Guide you on how to use our office to gain experience

You should come if you…
- Are a first-year student!
- Want to know what experiences employers look for and how to get it.
- Have been asked at least 50 times already, “what’s your major?”
- Aren’t totally sure on what the “Career Center” does.

*RSVP is required for this program.

Readers & Best was created in the Summer of 2014 as a joint collaboration between the Ginsberg Center’s Literacy Initiatives and the Athletic Department’s Let’s Go Do program. The goal was to provide opportunities for students across campus to come together to support reading in local schools through one-time visits. We provide the monthly curriculum for each visit, which includes a book and activity specific to the grade level of the classroom. The general Readers & Best visit requires a 2.5 hour time block from student volunteers. This includes the brief orientation, travel and the time at the school. Typically, we offer 10 slots for schools participating in the Readers and Best curriculum. The visit is led by a site leader and up to 6 additional students (since we can fit 7 people in a van). Volunteers are at the school for an hour and a half, so each volunteer reads to 2 classrooms for 30 minutes each. The Ginsberg Center provides transportation to and from the schools.

The Spectrum Center's LGBTQ Allyhood Development Training Program, started in 2005, seeks to support an individual or organization’s process of development as it relates to LGBTQ inclusivity and advocacy. Allyhood Development Training (ADT) uses a social justice framework to illustrate the lived experiences of LGBTQ identified people to workshop participants.
Topics include social identities, LGBTQ terminology, active bystander intervention strategies, and practice utilizing the day's knowledge and skills in real-life scenarios.
Through active engagement in the training, participants will grow in their personal awareness, knowledge, skills, and actions as it relates to their engagement in doing ally work. The purpose of having the Allyhood Development Training is to promote a campus community in which everyone is treated with respect and dignity.
During FY19, there are two open ADT sessions that are available to sign up for. Lunch is provided during the training.
