Working at the Center for Leadership Development and Social Action this past year as a sophomore has been extremely engaging and eye-opening, and has been both a learning experience and really fun. Over the course of the semester, I helped coordinate and assist with logistics of most of the Center's biggest programs such as Framework Fridays, Leaders in Residence Lunches, Alternative Spring Break, and the Leadership and Service Awards. My duties ranged from small office tasks like emailing, making phone calls, and copying important files to more exciting things such as introducing and meeting some of the greatest faculty on campus to learning more about the importance of leadership and what it looks like at Duke.

While working at the Center for Leadership Development and Social Action, I have gained a lot of knowledge about the inner workings of the University. My first set of CLDSA duties focused on familiarizing me with the Duke University Leadership Framework and the 3 C’s (“Character, Collaboration, and Citizenship to bring about positive Change”), which aligned very closely with my own goals as a leader. This similarity between the Center’s goals and my own originally came to me as a surprise, due to the fact that my view of leadership had been shaped by my seemingly disconnected life experiences (i.e. sports, friendships, and academia). After learning about the different departments of the University Center for Activities & Events (UCAE) and their functions, I went to work on spreading leadership knowledge and skills with the greater Duke community through open events such as Leadership Lunches and Framework Fridays.
