The Center for Leadership & Involvement (CfLI) is dedicated to supporting students as they develop their leadership capacity.  CfLI’s programming is committed to the concept of leadership as the phenomenon of change in beliefs, values and behaviors.  Programs are guided by the principle that leadership is an action-oriented endeavor and not necessarily based on position or level of authority.  We all can and do affect change.

The Center’s leadership development programming focuses on engaging students in diverse experiences and nurtures the practice of reflection.  This reflective approach enables students to make meaning of their experiences, learn from mistakes and re-apply successful behavior.
