The Advancing Leaders seminars examine community-based leadership theories. Specifically, they are designed to help students build upon their leadership experience and present methods that can be utilized to maximize the student’s impact on an organization and the community. The relationship leadership model will frame the content through five components of focus – being purposeful, empowering, process-oriented, ethical and inclusive. Students will learn how the components inform their own processes of decision making regarding organizational leadership.
Qualifications: Students must have held a leadership position on campus for a minimum of one year and be at least a second year undergraduate student.
The Transforming Leaders seminars are based on Schlossberg’s Transition Theory and allow students to build upon their understanding of leadership. The model will frame the content through four factors – self, situation, support and strategies. Students will learn to better articulate their leadership identity, understand their leadership style and values, and recognize ways to transform their leadership style in varying situations. Throughout the seminars, students will learn ways to leave a legacy as leaders at Stevens and to navigate their transition into post-graduate life. Students will have the opportunity to attend a student leadership conference to expand their network and learn from other students from various institutions.
Qualifications: Students must have held a leadership position on campus for a minimum of two years and be currently a junior or senior.

The workshops will focus on varying topics relevant to RSO leaders, such as communication styles, motivating the middle, program planning and leveraging club members' strengths in order to be successful RSOs.
