TLI Spring 2017 Schedule

The Terrapin Leadership Institute (TLI) is a 5-week workshop series designed to develop student self-awareness, foster their self-efficacy for leadership, and understand the individual's role within the leadership process. The workshop is a low-commitment, high intensity series that is meant to accommodate the student's busy schedule. In addition, there is no cost to participate in TLI! 

This semester, we are excited to offer 3 unique tracks of TLI: 

TLI Introductory Track: Perfect for emerging leaders looking to gain skills of effective leadership, including developing a personal leadership style, exploring ethics and integrity, and improving communication in collaboration.  No prior formal leadership experience necessary!  Choose from one of FOUR weekly meeting times:

  • Tuesdays from 5:30-7:00pm (Feb. 28- April 4)
  • Wednesdays from 4:30-6:00pm (March 1- April 5)
  • Wednesdays from 6:00-7:30pm (March 1- April 5)
  • Thursdays from 5:30-7:00pm (March 2- April 6)

TLI Plus TrackDesigned for students with previous exposure to leadership theory, styles, and experiences, the TLI Plus track examines the "Big L", or positional, leadership paradigm. How does a positional leader deal with challenges presented to oneself,  the organization’s membership, and the success of its mission? This is beneficial for students who are currently in such a position, or who are seeking to take one on in the future.

  • Tuesdays 7:00-8:30pm (Feb. 28- April 4)

TLI for College Park Scholars TrackUniquely for the College Park Scholars Living-Learning Program, this introduction to leadership will allow students to develop their personal leadership styles amidst a Scholars-specific context. Students will explore topics such as leadership styles, ethics and integrity and collaboration, which are key tenets of the Scholars community values. 

  • Thursdays 6:30-8:00pm (March 2- April 6)

TLI sessions will be facilitated by student leaders in the Maryland LEAD program and will take place in various rooms within the Stamp Student Union and the Cambridge Community Center (for the College Park Scholars Program).  All locations will be announced once registration has closed.
