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 officers in active discussion and reflection of four leadership themes:

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

  • Your influence on others: learn foundational leadership theories & the basic about leadership

  • 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 your 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.

I am currently a senior majoring in Retail Management and Marketing at Whitman School of Management. Born in South Korea and raised in Bellevue, Washington, I have a huge appreciation for avocados, sweet & salty popcorn, and white chocolate gummy bears. This is my second year with BOLD as the Marketing and Advertising Coordinator, and my excitement for the organization only grows each year! To me, BOLD is a valuable resource and opportunity for all clubs to take advantage of as well as a guiding tool for devoted individuals in the club to grow their own leadership skills.
