Custom Design Workshops for Student Organizations
To request a custom-designed workshop for your club or organization, please fill out the Workshop Request Form. Once you submit your request, a member of the Archer Center will contact you.
Please note: The Archer Center custom designs workshops to meet the specific needs of each audience and because of this we typically ask for two weeks notice for workshop and training requests.
Club and Organization Training
The Archer Center provides custom-designed workshops to all Rensselaer organizations. We do training for executive boards and/or the general members as a whole. Different from the classroom experience, workshops are tailored to your specific needs.
Groups and organizations across the Rensselaer campus can contact the Archer Center to consult about any variety of leadership topics. One on one meetings or group consultation are available.
Emerging Leaders Program
Emerging Leaders is a series of four meetings designed to facilitate leadership development in first year students. The program is co-facilitated by the Archer Center and the Office of the First-Year Experience and serves to provide first-year students with an opportunity to develop a foundation of leadership skills and knowledge. Contact the Archer Center or the Student Experience Office for more information.
In-Class Learning Experiences
Archer Center staff are invited by faculty into classrooms to facilitate activities designed to emphasize the importance of teamwork in group projects.
Leadership House, a residential community for first-year students, is designed to enhance students’ leadership skills while empowering them to become more effective leaders in any class, community, or organization. The program will provide approximately 40 students with opportunities to explore fundamental leadership topics through fun, hands-on activities and interactive workshops while living together on a floor in a first-year residence hall. For additional information about the program and how to apply please see the Leadership House web page.
