About Leadership Development

Leadership Development in the Office of Student Life is a comprehensive leadership training resource that provides services to emerging and established student leaders. Our services are intentionally broad to serve students with a wide variety of leadership interests and objectives. Student leaders are encouraged to pursue other departmental, campus and community leadership opportunities in conjunction with their participation in the Leadership Development Center.

Funding for Leadership Development

Leadership Development is supported by the Student Life Fee, the Students' Initiative Fee and generous private benefactors.

If you are interested in supporting Leadership Development, please contact our staff directly or contact Catherine Boyer, Acting Director of Student Affairs Grants and Development, by telephone at (805) 893-5037 or by email at
