The Center for Leadership and Service (CLS) provides the structure and resources to prepare students to become productive citizens and assume roles of leadership and service in a culturally diverse and increasingly complex society. The CLS fosters lifelong service and civic participation by engaging the University with its greater community in action, change and learning. The CLS was founded on basic concepts of integration between leadership education and programs; community service and service learning; and community engagement.
The (CLS) also provides educational programs, workshops and conferences; coordinates community service, leadership, and service learning opportunities for students; develops reciprocal relationships with the community in order to best serve all parties; and will serve as a resource for faculty and staff on these topics. Ideally, the scope of the CLS will expand to also conduct research and provide pedagogical workshops for faculty.
