Center for Student Leadership Development

Program Overview

The main goal of The Herbert H. Lehman Center for Student Leadership Development is to help students become more engaged in the process of leadership on campus. Our focus is to help students assess their leadership identity and core values to make informed decisions regarding their major and career choices. Over the course of the semester, students will be exposed to different leadership styles and models including the Social Change Model; The Relational Leadership Model; and The Five Practices of Exemplary Leaders.

Our programs and services include leadership certificate programs, conferences, weekend retreats, reflective dialogues, public speaking and speech writing workshops, faculty luncheons and visits to The White House and United Nations. The programs are all grounded in the core belief that leadership can be learned. Participants will be provided with opportunities to develop their personal philosophy of leadership that includes understanding of self, others and community, and acceptance of responsibilities inherent in community membership*.
