IAROSLAV LUTSENKO
FROM UKRAINE
PRE-MASTER’S PROGRAM, MBA
All of the people have different backgrounds, not just
international students. I started to talk with people and they all
have different life experiences. It impressed me that we can
connect with each other and find something in common, all
through Roosevelt University.
ISC student Iaroslav participated in the Roosevelt
University Student Leadership Summit 2014. Students
from all parts of the university joined together on this
weekend retreat, sponsored by the Center for Student
Involvement, to focus on leadership development, social
justice, and how to become better agents of social change.
Iaroslav recognized that all the knowledge he gained in the
leadership summit was important and memorable, and he
plans to apply it in his daily life. The summit also gave him
the opportunity to discover that he possesses the potential
and qualities needed to become a great leader.
