Student Leadership and Volunteer Services

The Department of Student Leadership and Volunteer Services provides a variety of programs and services to assist students in developing their leadership potential and prepares students for lives of active community engagement within a complex and changing world. Prior leadership or volunteer experience is not required to participate in the programs. The department develops students into leaders prepared to make a difference in their professions and their communities. The programs and volunteer opportunities offered help each student discover their passion and talents, while developing their skills and understanding of leadership and active citizenship.
