Our Skill-Building Workshops offer practical advice and tools to help students be more successful team members in the classroom, in organizations and in their professional spheres, and build essential skills for lives of leadership and service.

Workshops will be held Wednesday nights from 5:30 to 7pm in the Helge Multipurpose room — with food!
