CU GOLD (Gaining Opportunities through Leadership Development) provides free leadership development opportunities to all CU students as a student lead entity under the Center for Student Involvement. We provide two tiers of advanced leadership training that include semester-long weekly seminars (our introductory Core Leadership Program and our advanced Applied Leadership Program). We also provide on-demand leadership curriculum to all CU clubs, organizations and academic departments through our Workshops in a Box program. In addition to these programs, we also sponsor multiple leadership events and conferences throughout the school year.
CU GOLD builds an inclusive community where all students can find their place on campus while providing students with the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills. Students have the opportunity to improve their leadership skills through learning about the practices of effective communication, exploration of personal values and identity, and the power of group dynamics. Through CU GOLD programming, students will gain personal awareness and growth that will benefit them in future opportunities.
We are currently analyzing and adapting to the impacts that COVID-19 has on the program.
