The Chidsey Center can provide support and resources as you work on your Sophomore Strategies. Whether you have a formal leadership role or are actively engaged in a campus or community group, Chidsey Center programs can enable you to have a greater impact in your areas of passion.
The Chidsey Center offers assessments which can help you discern your personal values, identify your strengths, and/or assess your leadership competencies. Some of the tools we offer include:
Leadership Practices Inventory: This tool helps you assess your level of competency on key leadership behaviors. You can ask peers to complete this survey so that you can compare your self assessment to their assessment of you.
Personal Values Exploration / Personal Leadership Philosophy: Gain clarity about what matters to you most and articulate your personal approach to leadership.
StrengthsQuest: Identify your areas of talent and determine how to build on them so that you may bring those strengths to your leadership.
Emotionally Intelligent Leadership Inventory: Effective leaders are conscious of context, self, and others. Learn the areas of emotionally intelligent leadership that come naturally to you and identify areas to work on.

Networking and Skill Building
The Chidsey Center offers a number of programs which connect you with your peers and help you to build your leadership skills at the same time.
- Are you a student leader looking to improve your leadership skills for yourself and your organization? Check out Leadership Lunch Summits.
- Are you a woman looking to connect with other female students and community members? Register to attend the Women's Leadership Conference in March.
- All students are invited to attend the Annual Leadership Retreat (between the end of finals and graduation).
- Students who have primary responsibility for campus and community organizations can apply to Leadership Davidson where they will be matched with mentors and participate in a seminar series.
- If you need quick advice, check out our Leadership Toolkit -- brief handouts with strategies for dealing with issues ranging from group dynamics to publicity, to self-care.
What else can we do for you?
We are always open to cosponsoring with student organizations to bring speakers to campus. We also have some resources available to sponsor students to attend conferences.
