Education, leadership, and service are at the core of the Catholic, Marianist institution, and Chaminade aims to further holistic development for all students. Undergraduate leadership experiences will equip students with the knowledge and skills needed for personal and professional development. Leadership positions positively impact the Chaminade University community through contribution and positive role modeling.
Leaders of recognized student groups have an opportunity to attend training sessions and workshops that develop leadership skills. Leadership is a process, not a position, and we are determined to prepare students with the skills necessary for success. Trainings and workshops take place throughout the academic year.
Our training goals are to foster team building, self-understanding of leadership style/skills, awareness/practice with organizational management (e.g., running effective meetings, delegation, communication, etc.), knowledge of university goals/direction for the current semester, diversity training and time for each organization to meet and plan for the current semester.
The Office of Student Activities and Leadership, as well as other sponsoring departments or clubs, fund students to a 3-day conference of leadership, friendship and education.
The OSAL office houses a collection of books on leadership and current affairs. All of the books are available for students, staff and faculty to check out. Please visit the OSAL office for a complete listing of book titles.
