As part of Western’s Leadership Advantage, we provide opportunities for students to learn about and develop their leadership potential through academic courses, professional speakers and a collaborative learning and leading experience. The institute is committed to building leaders from all disciplines and interests. Our goal is to encourage students to recognize what leadership means to them and learn how to integrate leadership theory in their own leadership roles with the support of professionals and alumni. We are preparing future leaders to become positive change agents in a challenging world.

Our mission: To produce graduates who will be able to demonstrate responsible leadership in their personal, professional and civic lives.
