Leadership in Organizations
Honing skills as a leader requires practice. Leading and collaborating as part of a team can help you build your skills while also contributing your own experience from your community and workplace.
In addition to individual training and collaboration with others in student organizations, you can also develop yourself as a leader by serving others. Learn more about service opportunities at Penn State World Campus.
