Foundations Certificate

A leadership development program

This program is designed for first-year (freshman) students. By engaging in Foundations, you gain a competitive edge to harness your leadership style and skills. Students who complete the six-week Foundations program go on to compete for highly sought after leadership positions on Ohio University’s campus.

Get Involved

During the semester, we offer two opportunities to engage in Foundations on Monday and the Thursday evenings beginning week six. Each group runs for six weeks. To take part, decide which day of the week fits best with your schedule and attend the first session. It's that easy! There is no need to register in advance. If you have questions, call our main office.
