Leadership Development

Campus Recreation employees will act with intent to awaken their latent potential for ethical, effective, and transformational leadership in both the personal and professional spheres.

TU GROW Conversations

TU Grow Logo

GROW stands for “Guided Reflection On Work.” TU GROW is based on a program at The University of Iowa, and features four simple questions that our supervisors review with student employees once per semester. These questions assist in bridging the gap between your job responsibilities, school, and your professional goals.

TU GROW Questions

  1. How is this job fitting in with your academics?
  2. What are you learning here that’s helping you in school?
  3. What are you learning in class that you can apply here at work?
  4. Can you give me a couple of examples of things you’ve learned here that you think you’ll use in your chosen profession?
