Bobcats of Tomorrow

The Bobcats of Tomorrow living experience is an opportunity for first-year students who are interested in developing their leadership skills in a vibrant community of peers and mentors. Participants will engage in a combination of activities that will prepare them for leading in a variety of settings, with the goal of:

  • Developing their unique leadership style
  • Understanding the value of inclusive teams
  • Articulating the importance of their leadership skills to future employers

Through this living experience, participants will gain acceptance to the Bobcat Leadership Challenge, engage in career coaching, make connections with strategic leaders at OHIO, learn about scholarship opportunities for student leaders, and ultimately participate in certification program for their professional portfolio.

Participants will receive support in identifying on-campus employment opportunities while earning one credit hour per semester due to a strong partnership between Ohio University Housing and Residence Life, the Career and Leadership Development Center (CLCD), and the Faculty-in-Residence program. There are no participation fees for the program and we welcome students from a variety of majors and interests in order to provide a rich setting for not just receiving leadership lessons, but also for developing innovative approaches to leading in different institutional and social contexts.
