Student Leadership

  • “Real leaders are ordinary people with extraordinary determinations.”
    — John Seaman Garns

    Student Leadership supports the mission of the Center for Student Life by providing leadership development opportunities for students and student organizations and through supporting cocurricular activities and civic engagement.

    Student Leadership is also responsible for creating an environment that promotes the positive growth and development of students in order to facilitate a productive learning experience.
