programs help to provide resources and increase the skills necessary to be an effective student leader. All students are encouraged to get involved! Lead Want to learn more about yourself and your leader-ship style? In the LEAD Workshop series, students will explore leadership according to the Social Change Model (SCM) of Leadership Development. Or if a workshop is not your thing, you can explore leadership through Reading Between the LEAD, a not so traditional book club in which we read popular fiction and non-fiction books to discuss good and bad leadership styles. Leadership Advance Leaders do not retreat, they advance! Every year, students from campus go away for three days of intense training and development. It is a chance for students, faculty and staff to interact and discuss issues and topics relevant to student leadership. Throw in some fun, great food and an exciting competition, and it’s a great time! Applications for this program are available in the Spring Semester. FLEX (Freshman Leadership Experience) FLEX allows freshman who aspire to be student leaders to be mentored by Upstate Upper Classman. The FLEX Mentors hold leadership positions in addi-tion to demonstrating service and academic excel-lence. FLEX participants and their mentors meet on a monthly basis and both engage in various leader-ship activities that develop skills that can be applied to an academic, professional or community setting. These activities include leadership workshops, on and off-campus retreats, as well as facilitation of seminars that are held at USC Upstate. leadership roles across campus (student organiza-tions, peer leaders, RAs, etc.). FLEX is sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs. For more information, please visit www.uscupstate.edu/flex.
