Lead with the Center for Leadership

The Center for Leadership (CFL) is focused on supporting students as they learn, practice, and make meaning of being a leader at Elon and beyond.  Students practice leadership skills in student organizations, through peer mentoring experiences, on and off campus employment, and by volunteering.  The CFL offers leadership programming, leadership coaching, and engagement opportunities. We encourage everyone to stay connected by following our social media pages or check out the opportunities listed throughout our website.
