Two participate in LEAD program

ONEONTA — SUNY Oneonta recently recognized nearly 200 students who have attained leadership milestones through the college’s Leadership Education and Development program.

LEAD@Oneonta is a comprehensive leadership program based on current research and guidelines from the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education. All students can choose to participate in the LEAD program, which aims to better prepare them for life after college by providing a comprehensive picture of leadership and the skills needed to be a good leader.

Students can attain a silver, gold or platinum level. To attain each level, students must meet a mix of programmatic and experiential leadership requirements, including completion of online courses, attendance at educational events, and membership and leadership in one or more of SUNY Oneonta’s 100 plus student-run clubs and organizations.

Completion of a leadership level is recognized on campus as a credential that can be used, for example, when running for office or applying for Student Travel for Excellence Program funding. The program also provides students with a leadership record that can be submitted to potential employers.

The following students were part of the LEAD program:

∫ Kelsey Bogdan of Amsterdam — platinum, gold and silver levels

∫ Jillian Martelle of Johnstown — silver level.
