Are you looking for ways to enhance training and development of your Orientation Leaders? 

NODA is offering a virtual Student Leadership Institute (SLI) for all new and returning orientation and extended orientation leaders.

The SLI topics selected will engage undergraduate students regardless of their experiences working with orientation/transition/retention programs. Students will have an opportunity to meet other students in similar roles. Sessions will be interactive and students will be able to share their experiences.

July Cohort Dates

Part 1: July 25, 3:00-6:00 pm CST
Part 2: July 26, 3:00-6:00 pm CST


Each session is in 2 parts and the curriculum is the same for each session. Participants can register for any of the four session offerings.

Each registrant will participate in two 3-hour virtual workshop sessions. The sessions will be a combination of large group presentations and small group discussions led by NODA faculty. Students will work through a curriculum covering leadership theories, facilitation skills, conflict resolution, community building, and navigating the unique stresses of post-pandemic leadership. The topics will be relevant for both new and returning orientation leaders.
