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 offered by the Student Activities Office, students can build and practice leadership skills through involvement in student organizations, on-campus/work-study employment and by participating in recreational activities. Students can also participate in service-learning experiences which often provide opportunities to practice leadership skills.

Students can sign up individually or as a group.
