The Biden Institute Student Advisory Council

The Biden Institute is launching a Student Advisory Council (SAC) to help identify, participate in, and promote programming across campus.
Students on the council will gain meaningful leadership experience in politics and public service and assist with outreach to diverse and specific student populations, supporting the work of the Biden Institute programming team.
The Biden Institute complements the work students do in the classroom by giving them first-hand opportunities to engage with activists, politicians, and policy practitioners from a wide range of ideologies. In the past we’ve hosted events with U.S. Senator Cory Booker, 2016 Presidential Candidate John Kasich, and former Acting U.S. Attorney General Sally Yates to name a few. We have an exciting Fall 2020 lineup of events — and want you to help us plan even more!

•Attend bi-weekly Student Advisory Council Zoom meetings
•Provide recommendations and feedback to the Biden Institute on semesterly programming
•Act as student ambassadors for the Biden Institute to the UD community
•Advertise and participate in Biden Institute programming
Must be a University of Delaware student, any major, any graduating year. Undergraduate and graduate students may apply.
MANDATORY: Must be able to make the inaugural Zoom meeting on Monday, September 14 at 7:00PM ET

Deadline: August 21 at 11:59PM

Ascend: Empowering Female Students for Success Webinars

Are you trying to figure out how to get a job that allows you to be your authentic female self?  Do you feel like no matter what you learn in the classroom, you still feel unprepared for the work world? Do you feel like you could use more examples of successful women as role models? Do you want to connect with other female students that have similar experiences to yours?   These one hour online sessions are set up to address these issues.  Each session will teach critical leadership skills, introducing participants to successful female executives to serve as advisors and role models, and invite you to build connections with other female students with similar experiences. Each of these online sessions will include a 15-minute talk from a successful female executive and a facilitated breakout discussion where students meet one another and deepen their learning and connection.
