Pop-Up Leadership


Our team believes that small kernels of leadership can inspire grand ideas. Pop-Up Leadership aims to provide quick tools and tips that may serve as training tools in honing the leadership skills of Rutgers students. While offering a combination of interesting leadership perspectives and innovative ideas, we believe that Pop-Up Leadership will help students realize the endless value that leadership tools and critical analysis can provide for their collegiate career and future.

This tri-fold leadership program engages students on and off campus in a variety of ways. Through on campus tabling workshops, our leadership team engages students in thought provoking dialogue while also encouraging them to offer their own opinions and perspectives related to modern forms of leadership and relevant issues.

Our team building experts get students moving and strategizing across campus through interactive, teambuilding challenges, designed to promote critical thinking and teamwork among the student body.

Students can also find the latest leadership knowledge on the web. Tune in to our original Pop-Up Webisodes where our leadership team takes a different spin on digital identity and branding tips and tricks. Students can also catch up on workshop materials with our weekly blog entries here.
