With its intentional design, the Razor's Edge Program asks students to be involved and put their leadership learned in the classroom to practice. Current students have done so, and are involve in a variety of ways at NSU! A benefit of being involved is the application of leadership during time with Razor's Edge and the translation of these experiences into practice when they enter the real world. The involvement of the students ranges from fraternities and sororities to registered student organizations, and community service projects. The following are organizations that Razor's Edge students are not only involved, but also leading:
Ablaze • Alpha Kappa Psi • Alpha Phi Omega • American Association of University Women (AAUW) • Athletic Training Student Organization (ATSO) • Beta Theta Pi Fraternity • Community Action Using Student Empowerment (C.A.U.S.E.) • Catholic Life • Cross Country • Delta Phi Epsilon Sorority • Fellowship of Christian Athletes • Hillel • Interfraternity Council (IFC) • Lambda Theta Alpha Sorority, Inc. • NSU Cheerleading • NSU Mock Trial • Orientation Team • Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity • Phi Sigma Sigma Sorority • President's 64 • Psychology Club • Relay for Life • Rotaract • S.E.A. Board • Sharkcorps • Sharkettes • Sigma Delta Tau Sorority • Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) • Student Government Association • Students Working For Equal Rights (S.W.E.R.) • Up Til Dawn • Women's Soccer • Wrestling Club
Each month, one of our student staff members, Jesse Chait, provides us a leadership lesson on behalf of the program – typically that lesson comes right from his experience on campus. Read the Razor's Edge blog.
Within the Razor's Edge program are several committees, each with an end goal to better improve the program – both internally and externally. Each committee – Service, Events, Application Review and Peer Review Board (PRB) – is led by a chairperson whom has one or more years experience within the Razor's Edge program. Anywhere from 4 to 8 members of the program assist with all committee duties and report back to the Graduate Assistant for Leadership Development in conjunction with the Director of Student Leadership & Civic Engagement.
It is the goal of the Peer Review Board (PRB) to educate, to uphold the values of the Razor's Edge program, hold confidentiality, and to act with a manner of professionalism while keeping a student perspective. The Peer Review Board is empowered to review all student involvement statistics including attendance, and uphold all aspects of the memorandum of understanding agreed upon by all students in Razor's Edge.
The curriculum of the Razor's Edge program provides students with the opportunity to develop leadership skills that will only help them continue success in their future.
We understand that scheduling can be a challenge between major courses and their available times. While we always want our students to take leadership courses in a live classroom setting, we understand at times online is the only option. Any junior that needs to take an on-line leadership course from the aforementioned approved list can do so with the approval of the Director.
