About

Parent Organization: U of A Students' Union

Leadership & Recognition (L&R) is a unit in the SU Student Services that formed in May 2015. The purpose of the unit is to develop and deliver leadership training on campus and recognize the outstanding student leaders on campus. L&R is responsible for the Emerging Leaders Program, the Alberta Student Leadership Summit, Student Group Executive Training and the SU Awards.

We also provide customized training to student groups on a range of topics including leadership, conflict resolution, and self-care. Contact us to see how we can work with you!

There are three main areas of leadership development that we offer:

  • The Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is a three day course that introduces leadership theories and best practices for student leaders.

  • The Alberta Student Leadership Summit (ASLS) is a one day province-wide conference for post-secondary students.

  • SU Awards which recognize student achievement in leadership, involvement, academics, sports and arts.

If you are looking for ways of enhancing your leadership skills or those of your team, contact us and we would be happy to explore options!
