Development and Recognition

Leadership Development Workshops Content

The Leadership Development Workshops allow students to develop further their co-curricular transcripts, leadership, and career readiness skills. Each workshop covers a different topic in an engaging and interactive way! Check out our upcoming workshops here:

Bat Chats

Bat Chats are thrilling and interactive student-led speaker sessions inspired by TED Talks! These unique events allow you to join your fellow students in engaging discussions on topics that matter most to you. It’s a platform for meaningful conversations, self-improvement, leadership, and motivation.
