If you were or are a leader in any one (or more!) of the areas listed below*, please join us to reminisce, network, and learn about the current state of and future plans for academic and co-curricular student leadership/leadership studies on campus. Food, memorabilia, and a wonderful time will be shared. Some special guests! Chance to talk to prospective students and families too! Time and location will be determined three months before the event, but likely to be Saturday, March 19, 2018. Call 360.650.4190, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

We though we would organize this for this year, but we think we will have a better chance of getting you here if you have a long window to plan. It will be very exciting, for example, to celebrate 10 years of Leadership Scholars; our first cohort began at Western in September 2007. If you attend this year OR you would like to be involved in helping to make this event a success next year, please email us, give us a call, or find us on Facebook: https://facebook.com/WWUwla/

Mission: Western’s Leadership Advantage (WLA) aims to develop graduates who are well prepared to exercise responsible and innovative leadership in their chosen fields and careers, and in their communities.
LEADS provides opportunities to campus students including highly experiential courses and training, innovative lectures and events, creation of a leadership e-portfolio through a developmental learning process, and participation in collaborative learning/service learning on and off campus that prepare students to be successful leaders now and after they graduate. LEADS and Western’s Leadership Advantage supports strategic initiatives at Western to assure a focus on our campus connected to environmental and social sustainability, ethics, and social entrepreneurship that complement the campus’ commitment to being a publicly purposed university. LEADS is committed to developing student leaders who are ethical, attuned to developing social entrepreneurship skills and creating solutions for environmental and social sustainability.
Under the direction of Reneé Collins, Ed.D., Associate Dean of Students, the LEADS program is part of a larger unit with the Ethnic Student Center and Student Outreach Services. Using integrative thinking in a blended model, SOS/LEADS/ESC work together to address the challenges faced by students who may be first generation, immigrant, from economically challenged families or diverse by race/ethnicity or other identifying characteristics, while recognizing the assets and strengths of these students and student populations on campus
