Leadership Skills

  • Leadership Coaching. Leading Edge (One-on-One Leadership Coaching) is a leadership development experience for undergraduate and graduate students at Georgia Tech where participants work with a leadership coach to intentionally explore and grow their leadership skills. Leadership happens everywhere, and one does not have to be in a leadership role to be a leader.
  • Leadership Fellows. The purpose of the Leadership Fellows Program is to enable faculty, staff, and graduate students at Tech to serve as leadership coaches for Georgia Tech students. Leadership Fellows will be professionally trained in leadership and coaching, earn a $3,000 stipend (master's/Ph.D students) or recognition (faculty/staff/alumni), and be expected to give four to five hours per week of time to the coaching process.
  • Grad Groups Group Leaders. This is an opportunity for any graduate student who is looking to diversify his or her resume and add leadership experience.  Group leaders will have the opportunity to mentor, counsel, and lead a group of first-semester graduate students as they acclimate to campus and adjust to life at Tech.
  • TA Fellows. If you are a graduate student with at least two semesters of experience as a GTA and want to mentor new TAs, apply to be a TA Fellow to help plan and lead TA Orientation. Applications are available annually in March.
  • GOSTEM Graduate Teaching Fellows. The Graduate Teaching Fellows work in science and math classes, after school clubs, and mentoring and tutoring programs to serve as role models and bridges from the secondary schools to STEM higher education.
  • Graduate Student Government Association. Graduate Student Government Association is an organization dedicated to making the academic and personal lives of Georgia Tech graduate students better by advocating on their behalf. Graduate Student Senate elections are held annually each fall with weekly meetings taking place on Tuesdays at 11 a.m.
