Syracuse University’s BOLD program is a voluntary program that empowers student organizations to take charge in their leadership growth and their organization’s success.

About BOLD

The program’s curriculum is based on participation in skill-based workshops meant to engage student organization members in active discussion and reflection of four leadership themes:

  • The leader in you: explore your strengths & discover your leadership style.

  • Your influence on others: how those strengths can be used in your organization.

  • You and your organization: develop skills and techniques needed to promote your organization’s interactions & initiatives.

  • Leading in your world: discover how to make a difference on campus and in your community.

Through completing goals within the curriculum, students will develop the skills needed to successfully run their organization and make positive changes on campus and in the community. Students will also be eligible earn certificates that will boost their resume and earn rewards that will contribute to their organization’s events, activities, and interactions.
