    Student Leadership

    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.

    Leadership Opportunities

    Student Development and Activities offers several leadership workshops and retreats throughout the year in collaboration with campus partners.

    Orientation Program

    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.
