Leadership Development

If you’re looking for an opportunity to get involved, make a difference, meet new people, and grow as a person, then you’ve come to the right place!  One of the major reasons people get involved in student organizations is to develop their leadership skills.  

The Office of Student Activities provides opportunities for students to develop their leadership skills through experiential learning, peer mentoring, formal classroom study, and off-campus and on-campus leadership conferences.

The Office of Student Activities serves as a resource for students and student organizations who are interested in expanding their leadership skills, addressing specific organizational issues, and assists in general leadership guidance and growth.  The Student Leadership Center is also an excellent resource for students hoping to build their leadership skills.

Take some time to explore our pages and find the type of involvement that’s right for you.  Our goal is to help better prepare you for life after college while ensuring that your life during college is both fun and meaningful!
