Maximize Potential Certificate program

The Maximize Potential Certificate program is a great opportunity for students who are thinking about getting involved in Housing’s upper year leadership opportunities such as becoming a Don, a Peer Leader, or a Front Desk Assistant.

Why should I participate?

Come on out to these free and helpful workshops.

Complete them at any pace, in any residence building, and in any order! 

Here are just a few workshops being offered:

Learn about the co-op process at
UW and the resources available to help you find your first work term. 

What makes you unique? Come to this session to discuss and embrace your individual identity.

A fun and comfortable atmosphere to learn about sexual health. You'll wish sex ed was this much fun in high school.

Learn how to approach reviewing and test-taking more effectively. We will cover a variety of test formats and various strategies for learning and reviewing.
