The ISULeads Leadership Certificate Program is the newest initiative coordinated by Leadership and Service, a unit of the Dean of Students Office.

ISULeads is a comprehensive leadership-based program offering students a structure for personalizing their college experience to develop as strong leaders and engaged citizens. The program is a campus-wide initiative incorporating curricular and co-curricular learning built on three pillars: civic engagement; global perspectives; and leadership.

In order to fulfill the requirements of each pillar, students will meet with a mentor and participate in small groups on a monthly basis, and complete learning logs to reflect on their experiences and document their involvement. ISULeads is designed to help students select involvement opportunities that build on one another to make the most of their involvement and grow in their understanding, practice, and articulation of leadership.
