More on the Student Leadership Series
- During student’s time working at UREC, they have the opportunity to participate in voluntary (unpaid) professional development sessions sponsored by UREC. Student Leadership Series topics are broad. Some topics include job searching skills (“Interviewing the Interview: Aligning Your Values & Job Fit”), being more effective at work (“Learning Styles in the Workplace: Communicating Your Message Effectively”), preparing for graduation (“Young Alumni Involvement – Keeping the U in JM”) and a “Choose Your Own” opportunity to learn more about another educational program area of UREC.
- In order to earn a UREC Leader Feather Pin and a certificate, students must complete four credits in a semester or five credits in a year.
- Over your tenure at UREC, you can earn different levels of Feathers: Silver (4/semester or 5/year); Gold (8-10); Diamond (12+). You must turn in your old Feather to get a new Feather!
