The Center for Leadership 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.

Our Purpose

Elon students will graduate with greater leadership self-efficacy, the desire and ability to work collaboratively within diverse communities of people, as well as have the confidence and competence to put innovative ideas into action for positive change.

Departmental Educational Priority

As a result of their co-curricular experiences, students at Elon University will grow and engage as socially responsible leaders.

What is socially responsible leadership?  “An approach to leadership that maintains a sense of responsibility for the welfare of others as the group goes about its business.” (Komives & Wagoner, 2009)
