Terrapin Leadership Institute

The Terrapin Leadership Institute (TLI)  is a five week-long leadership development program tasked to guide students across campus -- through hands-on activities and critical dialogue -- in discovering who they are as leaders and becoming confident with tangible leadership skills and strategies that can be applied to their everyday lives. The workshop is a low-commitment, high intensity series that is meant to accommodate the student's busy schedule. In addition, there is no cost to participate in TLI! 

 

Registration for this semester is closed. Check back in the fall!

Schedule

TLI Introductory Track (5 weeks): Intro engages with concepts like leadership styles, ethics, identity, collaboration and communication to develop increased understanding of the sequential nature of leadership -- self-leadership, effective teamwork, and ultimately practicing socially responsible leadership in one’s community. Perfect for emerging leaders! No prior formal leadership experience necessary! Choose from ONE of three weekly meeting times:

Tuesdays from 5:30-7:00pm (Oct. 2nd to Oct. 30th)

TLI for College Park Scholars Track (5 weeks): Uniquely for the College Park Scholars Living-Learning Program, this introduction to leadership will allow students to develop their personal leadership styles amidst a Scholars-specific context. Students will explore concepts like leadership styles, ethics, identity, collaboration and communication to develop increased understanding of the sequential nature of leadership -- self-leadership, effective teamwork, and ultimately practicing socially responsible leadership in one’s community. This track is held in the Cambridge Community Center and shapes dialogue around the shared goals/mission of TLI and Scholars.

Wednesdays 6:30-8:00pm (Oct. 3rd to Oct. 31st)

TLI Plus Track (5 weeks): Designed for those who have previous exposure to leadership theory, styles, and experiences, the TLI Plus track examines positional leadership . How does a positional leader deal with challenges presented to oneself,  the organization’s membership, and the success of its mission? This is beneficial for students who are currently in such a position, or who are seeking to take one on in the future.

***NOTE: Participants MUST have completed a previous Maryland LEAD program (TLI Intro, Maryland Leadership Conference, Summit, or Turtle Camp) or hold a positional leadership position on campus to register for this track.

This track focuses on organizational dynamics and development centered around structural, relational, and cultural aspects of student organizations. Perfect for student organization leaders looking to lead and develop their organization.
