The Spring Leadership Summit is a series of four workshops developed to foster the personal leadership growth of Teachers College students, staff, and community members, preparing them to lead effectively across their varying roles and contexts. The Summit is organized by members of the Organizational and Human Development Consulting Club (OHDCC) and the Organizational Leadership Association (OLA) and is sponsored by the Vice President’s Diversity and Community Initiatives Grant Fund.

Four sessions are intended to highlight specific leadership qualities, attitudes, and behaviors that can be immediately applied in the organization, classroom, and home.
