At William & Mary, we believe that student leadership development is a cornerstone in supporting our students to become engaged citizens. Student leadership involves cultivating a frame of mind for exploring self, others and community. Leaders develop a skill set to adapt to change, craft creative solutions, and seize opportunities. Leaders are moved by what they care about to make the world a better place. We seek to create an engaging learning environment in which community is strengthened and individuals flourish.
The Office of Student Leadership Development believes that one of the primary means of student involvement is through recognized student organizations. Recognized Student Organizations (RSO's) at William & Mary are also responsible for many of the programs and events held on campus each year including social events, lectures, special events, cultural events, and conferences.
