BOLD Leadership Pathway Retreats and Workshops

Douglass Residential College students are offered numerous opportunities to build their skills through leadership worshops that seek to foster community as well as develop and sustain women's leadership in a global society.

BOLD Calendar

The BOLD Center offers numerous skills-building workshops, programs, and events to students at Douglass. Following students' participation in the leadership curriculum, students should be able to 1) recognize their leadership ability and reflect on the ways in which their experiences strengthen their leadership identity, and 2) deepen their intellectual and practical skills, as well as their role in being a socially responsible leader in a global society.

BOLD Pathway

Interwoven through the BOLD Center initiatives are four core values that are guiding principles for Douglass programs focused on career, leadership, and personal development. These include: 1) exploration of identity and selfknowledge; 2) affirmative environments to lead, live, and work well; 3) promotion of confidence as a method for achieving ones’ aspirations; and 4) cultivation of professional and life skills.

As you engage in the BOLD Leadership Pathway, you will gain critical professional and life competencies to deepen and grow your leadership skills. Being a BOLD leader requires your attendance in at least four events and participation in a Douglass student organization. In addition to the four required events of your choice, the mandatory events for the fall 2016 semester, include the Douglass Pine Leadership Retreat and the end of the semester Leadership Launchpad.

Weekly Coffee and Chats

The DRC Coffee and Chat are weekly forums every Friday from 10am-11:30am for workshops and discussions on a specific topic related to Douglass students' professional, personal, and leadership development. Join us for coffee, tea, and pastries!

Douglass Pine Leadership Retreat

Students that serve on the executive boards of Douglass student clubs and organizations are invited to participate in the Douglass Pine Leadership Retreat (DPLR), which is an exciting opportunity to enhance leadership skills, spend time with fellow Douglass women, and get away to the countryside. The retreat is held in the beginning of the fall semester at a venue outside of New Brunswick. In 2015, the DPLR was held in Dingmans Ferry, PA. The retreat includes accommodations, meals, and transportation.

The mission of the retreat is to provide current Douglass women with an opportunity to harness their leadership potential and explore meaningful mechanisms for building community. It serves to connect student leaders in an effort to enhance the Douglass student leadership community.
