    Leadership Development

    Leadership development is a never ending process” (Conger and Benjamin, 1999 pg 12). The Student Development office encourages students in leadership by providing challenging developmental experiences. Mentorship programs are available for students through the office.

    If a student or faculty wants to plan an event, develop a new club or organization, or reserve a room on campus, it must be done through the Student Development office.
