Leadership and Service
Who is it for?
Any first-year student who has a desire to develop and enhance their leadership skills while becoming active citizens in their local, regional, and global communities.
Why should I join?
The community is rooted in strengths-based leadership, with all members of the community utilizing the Gallup CliftonStrengths program to better understand strengths related to personal persistence and leadership opportunities. All community members will take the Gallup CliftonStrengths assessment at the beginning of their first year in the community, and the focus on strengths, along with the active citizenship continuum, will be the foundational philosophies for this community.
Students form relationships with others who share these interests and will learn from others' student leadership experiences and develop a great awareness of diverse perspectives. Students with an interest in leadership development, community engagement, and civic responsibility are a great fit for this community.
Students will be enrolled in an LLP-specific UK 101 course, will be connected to involvement opportunities, and will have an opportunity to engage in service projects throughout the year.
