Catalyst is a selective program for students returning to Aims after at least one semester (a minimum of 3 semester credits completed) with a minimum 2.0 GPA. To apply to the program students must be nominated by a faculty or staff member.
The term “catalyst” is defined as someone or something that encourages progress and change. This unique program helps students foster a mindset of completion and a vision of the “end in mind.” Over the span of two semesters (Spring & Fall) participants will be provided the opportunity to improve on skills attractive to future employers: teamwork, communication, leadership, organization, decision making, and other personal/professional skills. Membership in Catalyst strengthens your leadership skills, making you “the” candidate for your future career!
75 minute weekly meetings on the Greeley campus with topics covering: Johari Window, Servant Leadership, Diversity in the Workplace, Group Dynamics, Networking, Resume Development, Emotional IQ, Core Work Values, Service to Our Communities, and Preparing for the Interview.
Catalyst extends the first-year experience, building community in and outside of the classroom. Students who participate in Catalyst receive peer-to-peer and facilitator support as they continue to navigate Aims and achieve their personal and professional goals.
