In LeaderLabs, CLA Fellow Candidates explore the connections between leadership and their own experiences. These fellow candidates then speak about their journeys to the full cohort, allowing the speakers to gain valuable public speaking experience while also encouraging other fellow candidates to examine the insights and similar narratives in their own lives.

Next Leader Lab: February 10, 2023

Join us for a workshop on leadership! Three Peter C. Cook Leadership Academy fellow candidate students will share their perspectives on life and leadership, followed by an opportunity for attendees to reflect on their own leadership journeys and experiences through small group discussion. At the end of this event, you will leave with a better understanding of how you can be a leader in your own life. This workshop is open to all GVSU students, so bring your friends. (Did we mention there will be food?!) Mark it on your calendar and RSVP today!

Featured Students:
Jenna Adema

Past Leader Lab: Riley Pearl

Riley Pearl Leaderlab

“I have gained wisdom and strength through this journey, and yet my world would still be a better place if sickness did not exist. So really, the wall between the sick and the healthy is a concept of being in-between things, being two identities at once. A piece of my identity will always be left behind, not left in the dust to be forgotten but molded and shaped into something stronger over time.”

Riley Pearl, CLA Alumna
