A crucial part of Career & Leadership Development’s (CLD) mission is to develop visionary, goal-driven and action-oriented student leaders. Because there is no one-size-fits-all leadership style, CLD empowers each student with the ability to access their own unique identity as a leader. 

With opportunities to focus on multiple aspects of leadership, students will develop lifelong skills through character development, creative and critical thinking, interpersonal communication, practical knowledge and career preparation. We also encourage students to become leaders in their everyday lives by facilitating and encouraging opportunities for co-curricular learning, intentional engagement, self-reflection and skill development.
