First-Year Leadership Series

The First-Year Leadership Series (FLS) is for first-year Purdue students. This five session series will explore theorists Kouzes and Posner’s Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership: Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart.

These interactive, discussion-based, and reflection-focused workshops will also highlight professionals and their programs from various areas of campus.

Students who complete the series will:

  • Experience leadership growth
  • Learn about and gain access to involvement opportunities and leadership programs
  • Enhance their resumes
  • Receive a certificate and an entry on their co-curricular transcripts

Need more time to think about it?  Come to the first meeting on March 1 at 5:30 PM in KRCH 260 to complete your commitment card and start the series.

Co-Curricular Transcript (CCT)

The Co-Curricular Transcript (CCT) is a record of a Purdue University-West Lafayette campus student’s co-curricular involvement and leadership experiences.  Students can utilize the CCT for various purposes such as: a record of involvement at Purdue; to supplement applications to graduate school, scholarships, or campus jobs; an aid in “telling your story” or developing an elevator pitch for interviews and networking, assist in the development of resumes, considering career path, and as a tool to plan personal goals and manage time.

Gallup/Purdue Study

In partnership with the North American Interfraternity Conference and the National Panhellenic Conference, Gallup researched whether or not membership in a fraternity or sorority helps to provide the experiences that increase the odds of having a great job and a great life. This report, based on data collected through the Gallup-Purdue Index, details the positive relationships between membership and all of the key life experiences.  We would like to credit the leadership of Purdue University, Gallup, the North American Interfraternity Conference and the National Panhellenic Conference for their help in demonstrating the value of fraternity and sorority in higher education!  For more details, read the full Gallop/Purdue Study.
