We believe all students have the ability to lead.

Leadership is not only being in a position of leadership. It is knowing how to follow, how to work with a team, listen, and much more; being a leader is a responsibility. Skills you develop while in college will stay with you for a lifetime. Employers find great value in employees with well-developed communication, listening, teamwork, problem-solving, organizing, and planning skills. They also value character traits including integrity, adaptability, and determination. Our Leadership programs are designed to complement and enhance your academic experiences while developing these areas.

Through discussion with students, faculty, and staff from across campus, we have defined leadership to mean:

  • Fulfilling a role that serves with purpose, commitment and accountability.
  • Implementing ethical decision making to achieve personal and organizational goals and to meet the needs of the university community.
  • Demonstrating responsible citizenship through inclusive partnerships
