Dr. Heidi Larson and her graduate assistants will coordinate the additional leadership training during the regularly implemented mentor training at EIU. Training will take place at various times and locations on EIU’s campus.
Graduate assistants will host team-building exercises, lead workshops to highlight important leadership skills, and organize multiple guest speakers to discuss and learn about leadership throughout the training day.
Educational elements within the training highlight important leadership skills and qualities that each mentor will cultivate while taking part in the program, including being an effective communicator, building personal character, having courage, and showing empathy when speaking with others.
Mentors will receive information about the year’s curriculum to familiarize themselves with EIU and the location of important student resources.
