Leadership Opportunities and Programs
Peer programs are great additional resources for CSSH students, as well as a way for students to become leaders on campus. Many of these programs are primarily geared toward helping first-year students learn about the University and to navigate the many offices on campus, but they are also available to help out any student at Northeastern. Student organizations also offer many wonderful ways for undergraduates to connect with like-minded students on campus.
Becoming a peer mentor or tutor is a great way to get involved in a leadership role on campus. These students are volunteers to help new students become acclimated to Northeastern and to CSSH on both policy issues as well as on social connections. They strive to help build the bridges that connect students to the diverse communities that exist around the campus.
The university’s Peer Tutoring Program is available to any Northeastern undergraduate students and is located in 101 Lake Hall. Tina Kondopoulos, the Director for Tutoring, provides direction for the tutoring services and works with a team of graduate and undergraduate student coordinators to support the tutoring efforts in the academic departments.
To find out more about receiving tutorial assistance or on how to become involved as a student coordinator, visit the peer tutoring website.
Northeastern is home to more than 325 student organizations. Student government associations allow students to develop leadership potential. Academic and professional societies allow students to network with accomplished professionals in various fields. There are athletic clubs, performing arts groups, cultural organizations, and everything in between.
At Northeastern, there are plenty of ways to get involved. For a list of selected organizations that are of particular interest to CSSH students, click here.
The programs offered through the Student Leadership Office give students the opportunity to discover leadership through multiple perspectives and meet new people who do not live in their residence halls, are not in their academic classes, and yet share the common interest of leadership. Students can enhance their leadership skills through intergroup dialogues, the leadership consultant program, retreats, and other programming. BLUEPRINT is designed specifically for exposing first-year students to their leadership capacity.
