"Living in the Leadership for Social Change LC has helped with a smooth college transition, and created a strong core group of wonderful people to call friends. If you are looking for an amazing group of people who push each other to succeed, celebrate the little and big successes, and enjoy each other's company, this community is for you." -Megan

The Leadership for Social Change Learning Community is home to a diverse group of students who are committed to leadership development, and who see leadership as a collaborative process to promote social change. You will get to further develop your own leadership skills, explore your passions, and apply knowledge to have a positive impact on your community and the world. In addition, you will be able to form friendships with active, dedicated students through living together and participating in programs.
