Leadership: Defined by YOU

3 Feb

What does leadership mean to you?

Leadership. Webster’s dictionary defines it as “a position as a leader of a group, organization, etc. and the power or ability to lead other people” (Webster). Student Affairs Outreach facilitators interviewed fellow Wildcats to find out what leadership means to them. Let’s see how Wildcats clarify that “etc.” in the dictionary definition!

1. What does leadership mean to you? Leadership means taking on responsibilities that can affect other people and following through with those responsibilities, and the lessons you learn through doing that.

2. Which leadership opportunities are you pursuing/continuing this semester? I am a Club Advocate in ASUA where I am available and accessible to clubs and help them with anything they need. I am a Gato for Bear Down Camp where we learn all of the resources available to freshmen and then teach them about those resources. This semester, I am also in Arizona Ambassadors where we represent the U of A to prospective students.
