Leadership Workshops

Each semester, the Department of Student Life sponsors a leadership workshop for approximately 30 students active in co-curricular activities and students interested in developing new leadership skills. This workshop is held over a weekend, off campus, and is funded by the FIT Student Association.

The primary goal of the leadership workshop is to emphasize communication skills, group dynamic skills, and specifically-shared leadership theory and techniques. Exposure and experience of this kind prepares students to deal with any number of groups and individuals in school, in their personal lives, and in their chosen fields of endeavor. The weekend is packed with educational activities that are interactive and fun. All students are eligible to participate.

Attend the leadership workshop weekend:

  • to develop group skills;
  • to be a confident group leader and contributor;
  • to interact confidently with others; and
  • to involve yourself in group decision making.

Diversity, competition, values, team building, and listening skills are only a few of the topics covered during the leadership workshop.

All full-time FIT students are invited to participate, including graduate students. If you have any questions, contact the Department of Student Life at
