Foundations for First-Year Students is a six-week, certificate-bearing program designed to engage first-year students in leadership development.

During Foundations, students will immerse themselves in reflective exercises, group activities, and experiential learning opportunities to better understand their unique strengths, define their leadership style, and outline a plan for their leadership development at OHIO.

What first-year students will gain from Foundations:

  • Connect with other first-year students.
  • Discover your leadership style.
  • Write a personal mission statement.
  • Develop leadership skills and habits.
  • Create a vision for your leadership at Ohio University.

Each semester, the Career and Leadership Development Center offers two Foundations groups – the “Monday Group” and the “Thursday Group.” Each group runs for six weeks. To take part, decide which group fits best with your schedule and attend the first session. There is no need to register in advance.

Foundations will begin Monday, February 19th and Thursday, February 22nd at 6:30 pm in the Amanda J. Cunningham Leadership Center, Baker Room 366.
