Leadership Challenge registration ends Nov. 2
Widely recognized workshop to be offered in December  

Oct 22, 2008  

Ohio University students, faculty and staff, and local community members who wish to participate in a two-day, internationally recognized leadership workshop in December have until Nov. 2 to register.

Numerous slots are still available for The Leadership Challenge workshop, slated for Dec. 2-3 and sponsored by Ohio University's Department of Campus Life.

The workshop is rooted in a research project undertaken by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner in 1983. The pair sought to determine what ordinary people did when they were at their "personal best" in leading others. They developed their Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership model after analyzing such personal-best cases.

The registration rate for the workshop is $375 for students and $475 for others and may be tax-deductible for some participants. Online registration can be done at www.ohio.edu/campuslife/leadershipchallenge.cfm.

Kevin Smith, Campus Life's interim assistant director of leadership and community service, said the workshop is rarely offered on college campuses and in comparison to what other schools have charged, is very inexpensive.

"When Auburn recently offered the workshop, participants paid $1,200," Smith said. "The fact that our workshop costs less than $500 is a testament to the students who work in our Amanda J. Cunningham Leadership Center. They negotiated with the provider to bring this great leadership training opportunity to campus at an affordable rate."

For more information, contact Campus Life at 740-597-1619.
