Center for Student Engagement Opportunities & Events
GOLD Route*| Get started today!
CONTACT: Quinn Foster
Returning for its second year in Fall 2020, the GOLD (Guiding Organization Leader Development) Route is designed for students who hope to hold a leadership position and for students who are active as members of officers in one of Georgia Tech's 550+ Student Organizations. The GOLD Route program equips participants with the skills and knowledge they need to make meaningful change in their student leadership roles and in their leadership beyond Tech. Students select from a wide variety of GOLD Route workshops to fulfill requirements of each of the 3 foundational pillars (Personal Leadership & Development, Organizational Development, and Equity, Diversity, & Inclusivity); this allows each participant to select the experiences and workshops which will most contribute to their leadership journey.Visitwww.student-organizations.gatech.edu for detailed information.
*To ensure access to all students and out of an abundance of caution, the GOLD Route will be entirely online for Fall 2020. All programs will be required to be hosted exclusively online in order to be considered a portion of the GOLD Route during this time
