• Leadership Programs
  • The Office of Student Leadership and Involvement provides several opportunities in leadership development. Our primary objective is to prepare and empower students to be effective leaders and active citizens by presenting leadership opportunities, referrals, and workshops, both on and off campus. In addition to providing these resources, we serve as a central source for leadership opportunities offered throughout the university. For more information about student leadership, please email leadandserve@newschool.edu.
