Leadership Academy

About the Leadership Academy

Elevate your leadership skills. Network with and learn from experts in the field. Build professional relationships with other student leaders at UBuffalo. Together, we lead.

The Virtual Leadership Academy is a new program hosted by Student Engagement. Intentionally designed to engage students in conversations about leadership skills and strategies, this 8-week long program will help students discover who they are as a leader and develop their full leadership potential. We'll host weekly discussions and small group meetings that allow students to take a deep dive into what it means to be a leader and how they can leverage their skills to stand out amongst UBuffalo student leaders. 

This program will be delivered synchronously through an online platform on Thursdays from 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Students must be available at that time to participate in the Virtual Leadership Academy.
