Our Leadership Philosophy
Leadership is the intentional process of working together to create positive change. This change may be as small as an interaction between two people or as large as the creation of new technology. College students learn the art of leadership through their many interactions in class, clubs, and other encounters. We use these experiences to connect students with leadership knowledge, skills, and attitudes that they will use throughout their lifetime. Our focus is on self-discovery, developing talent, and creating impact.
The Leadership Hub in Marietta is our physical space for student leaders. The Leadership Hub is located in the Wilson Student Center within the Student Affairs suite in room A230f. This is a space for student leaders to collaborate and work in. Stop by and say hi!
