The Leadership for Social Change Learning Community
The Leadership for Social Change Learning Community (LC) is home to a diverse group of students who share a passion for exploring their own leadership styles and the concept of leadership as action through which change is effected for the betterment of others. Students engage in the exploration of leadership as a process, rather than a position, that promotes the values of social justice, self-knowledge, personal empowerment, collaboration, citizenship, and service. Students in the community are encouraged to build their leadership skills, discover their passions, and apply their self knowledge to their pursuit to better their community and the world around them.
