What Students Say

Student feedback and input are critical to program offerings through the Office of Leadership Development at Temple University. The staff works tirelessly to provide students tools and resources to learn, grow and develop, first as students and then in their professional careers. Below are quotes from past participants of the Student Leadership Challenge and Diamond Leader programs.

Student Leadership Challenge

"Completing the Student Leadership Challenge was important to me because I felt I lacked sufficient knowledge in leadership. I now have a competitive advantage because employers are looking to hire students with the leadership skills I gained through participating in the program."

Jared Owens, STHM '13

Diamond Leaders

"I participated in the Diamond Leader program for three years at Temple. This past summer, I was offered a full-time internship at Turner Sports for the upcoming year. In less than a week, I've already been to a Falcons preseason game and a Phillies-Braves baseball game! I definitely couldn't have done any of this without the support and mentorship (the office provides) and I'm so thankful to have had the Diamond Leaders during my time at Temple...and on stage with me at commencement! It's given me the confidence to go for my dreams and do everything I never thought I could do, from studying in London to working for the Olympics to working at Turner. I can't be more thankful to the program."

Sarah Higgins, SMC '13
