The Office of Student Involvement believes leadership is a critical part of a student's experience in college as well as an important tool to bring to both an individual's personal life and career. We are proud to offer numerous leadership opportunities to all of our students.

As a result of participating in Leadership Education program, students:

  • Will be able to articulate their leadership philosophy 
  • Illustrate at least two strategies they can use to empower others
  • Will demonstrate effective verbal and non-verbal communication skills
  • Engage in inclusive behaviors through their leadership roles and organizations
