The Center for Leadership supports the development of student leadership and service on campus and in the surrounding community. The center fosters personal growth, determination and self-awareness while providing guidance and inspiration to future leaders through our events and services. The Center for Leadership does not subscribe to a single model of leadership development. We strive to foster holistic leadership education through a variety of programs and resources by focusing on essential leadership competencies and using multiple theories, such as: the SALT model, Social Change Model, Emotionally Intelligent Leadership, Leadership Identity Development Model, Relational Leadership Model, and Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership
