The second annual BUILD Leadership Summit brought together business and pre-business students of varying experience for one day of workshops and networking. While many at UW took the day off, Foster freshman through seniors participated in discussions, communication activities, a campus scavenger hunt and various workshops held during the Veteran’s Day holiday.
The day-long event was part of the popular BUILD Program (Business Undergraduates in Leadership Development) and earned student participants two BUILD credits– 1/4 of what is needed to earn a BUILD Certificate. Students who earn 8 BUILD Program credits throughout the school year can earn a certificate and an invitation to a VIP reception at the end of the year. The BUILD Program hosts five events per quarter.
Alumni volunteers came back to help Undergraduate Programs Office advisers facilitate discussion groups and activities aimed at improving students’ leadership skills. Each student walked away with new contacts of peers and alumni, as well as a certificate of completion for participating in the day’s events.
