• Leadership Programs

    A leader is not necessarily someone who holds some formal position of leadership or who is perceived as a leader by others. Rather, a leader is one who is able to affect positive change for the betterment of others, the community, and society.

    In addition to the leadership development programs listed below that are offered by Student Activities & Leadership Development, students can build and practice leadership skills through involvement in student organizations, on-campus/work-study employment, and recreational activities. Students can also participate in service-learning experiences, which often provide opportunities to practice leadership skills.
