Leadership WSU

Take the next step in your leadership journey by learning how to make an impact in your community.  You'll join a smaller cohort of student leaders as we participate in a service project together and network with local community leaders, business owners, and government officials. You'll draw from the expertise of these local movers and shakers to create thoughtful dialogue around community issues and leadership concepts.

Applications for 2021-2022 are closed.  Check back early Fall 2022!
