Leadership Certificate

The Department of Residence Leadership Certificate is a component of the First-Year Leadership Program that is comprised of a series of interactive workshops that cumulate in a capstone project which encourages first-year students to explore their own leadership style and understand the impact that they can have on the greater community.

Participation in the program will require roughly 10 hours of participation where students will engage in a series of workshops in addition to a final capstone. Workshops are offered in both the fall and winter terms, focused on Values, Choices, Collaboration and Resiliency. Students that complete the Leadership Certificate are eligible to receive credit by adding the experience to their Laurier Experience Record (LER).
