The Office of Student Development and Activities provides several opportunities in leadership development, community service, and civic engagement.
Our primary objective is to prepare and empower you to be an effective leader and active citizen by presenting leadership and civic engagement information, referrals, workshops, and opportunities. In addition to providing these resources, the program serves as a central source for leadership and civic engagement opportunities offered throughout the university.

Student Development and Activities offers several leadership workshops and retreats throughout the year in collaboration with campus partners.
During New Student Orientation, we offer an "Introduction to Involvement" informational session. There we outline all the ways to get involved at The New School, including almost all opportunities for leadership. Be sure to check the schedule and attend.
The Student Success and Leadership Retreat is being held on October 8 and 9, 2016. It is a two-day, on-campus retreat that focuses on social change and building personal leadership skills. Prior leadership experience is not required. All applicants must be available for both days. Applications are due by September 28.
New for 2016–2017! We will be offering a series of programs to help you develop your potential as a person and a leader.
