We work alongside students to help them discover who they are by exploring their values, interests, and skills through leadership development and community engagement.

Leadership Opportunities

Our first-year leadership opportunities, or FLO’s, place students in small-groups to foster closer friendships while helping them transition to college life. Through weekly meetings and activities, an overnight retreat, and community service, students will turn their passions into purpose.

Throughout CLP students are able to identify their leadership style and strengths, participate in leadership retreats, create meaningful dialogue with their cohort peers, serve their community, and complete a Social Change Legacy Project. The Social Change Legacy Project provides students with an opportunity to create lasting social change in their communities focusing on a social topic of their choice.
