S.O.A.R. (Student Organization Annual Retreat), January 13-14, 2012
Jacksonville Campus

The purpose of S.O.A.R. is to cultivate a sense of community among students, enhance communication, identify concerns, and explore solutions. The retreat will serve as an opportunity for students to learn more about leadership, and thus, enhance their ability to be effective leaders in their organizations. The retreat will include workshops on financial planning for graduates, owning a pharmacy, career planning in pharmacy, keys to effective leadership, and more. Students will participate in team building exercises and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MTI).

Additionally, student leaders have an opportunity to benefit from the Student Affairs Coordinators professional expertise regarding student organization activities, leadership development trends, team-building and peer-to-peer networking. The intention is to enhance and encourage our students as leaders. Target will present topics on “how to” enhance leadership skills.

So You Want to be a Success? Spring 2010
One event per campus

In order to become outstanding leaders, students must first learn; to prepare for the workforce and the necessary skills to be successful managers. The “So You Want to be a Success” dinner gives students insight from Target representatives into interpersonal skills, leading versus managing and other skills vital to becoming leaders among their peers in the business and pharmacy world. As the exclusive sponsor, Target will work closely with the Phi Lambda Sigma leadership society to develop and execute the event. This year’s event will expand to reach our three distant campuses to connect more future leaders on a personal level.

Target Speaker Series

Directed by Kelly Markey, Senior Director of Development, and Darin Paine, Associate Director of Development, the Target Speaker Series will engage pharmacy students with successful leaders from the professional world. The goal is to influence and develop each student’s leadership abilities. Focusing on leadership throughout the series; the initial event involves GALLUP/StrengthsQuest in September, followed by an event featuring UF’s athletic director, Jeremy Foley in November. An additional event in February and an event in April, possibly tied into the Mortar and Pestle Awards, will be developed.
