Can one person really make a difference? Students can and do make significant contributions to the campus climate and culture here at CSI and in our respective communities. Next week begins our exciting 2018 CSI Leadership Week. Beginning Tuesday, Nov. 13 and continuing through to Saturday, Nov. 17, the CSI Office of Student Life will be offering events and workshops that will explore how to identify, build, and activate your leadership skills. The CSI community is invited to hear featured guest speakers as well as to engage in interactive themes, forums and workshops.
