Connect, learn, lead
Seeking out leadership opportunities helps you engage, learn, enhance your skills and build your community in the College of Science and at Oregon State. From joining science clubs and other student organizations to running for student office or becoming a science Peer Advisor, you can find a myriad of ways of connecting with the OSU community.
Skills you gain from these experiences—like communication, problem-solving, teamwork, critical thinking or public speaking—can help you better navigate and succeed in the workplace. Leadership opportunities can help you build the confidence you need to communicate your academic and personal experiences more effectively.
Being a leader takes hard work, grit, perseverance, passion, purpose and a belief that anything is possible. One way to get started is OSU’s LeaderShape® Institute, an intensive six-day, off-campus experience that inspires and motivates students to unlock their leadership potential.
Whether you are an incoming first-year student, a graduating senior or a graduate student, there are leadership experiences waiting for you.
