The Office of Student Leadership Development is committed to developing and offering opportunities for students to engage in, to elevate, and to explore the practice of leadership.  We offer a variety of leadership programs, workshops, mentorship, information sessions, and events to help support and develop leaders at William and Mary. We are also committed to helping connect students to additional opportunities on campus that meet similar goals.  There are a multitude of programs, mentorship opportunities, and events available to students through various campus partners and departments.

Our approach to leadership is rooted in theory, particularly the Social Change Model.  We believe that leadership can be learned.  We believe that leadership is not about a position of authority, but that all students have the capacity to affect positive change.

Our goal is to provide building blocks that allow students to explore, improve, and reflect upon their leadership capacity and efficacy.  We strive to help students engage, explore, and elevate their college experience so that they may flourish as individuals and become life-long contributors to strengthened communities.
