SAO offers a number of opportunities for students to take on leadership roles and develop leadership skills. SAO supports student leadership roles through individual advising efforts as well as collective workshops, training and information sessions with the goal of supporting student leadership growth while at Brown and providing transferable skills that sustain lifelong learning.
There are many leadership roles that students take part in while at Brown. Formal roles like Student Government, Recognized Organization Leadership, Peer Facilitators, and BOLT Leaders provide experiential opportunities for students to apply their leadership skills to practical situations. These skills are transferable to informal leadership roles in the classroom, as student employees, on teams, and in their communities.
