Leadership Initiatives

+ Mission Statement

Leadership programming offers students an opportunity to creatively practice leadership skills in the areas of arts, communications and culture in order to leverage the full value of contemporary urban education. Our programs are designed to foster imagination by way of leadership development and enhance the students' ability to pave a path to personal and professional success. The vitality of this program emerges from the workshops, and self-reflection, all of which serve as catalysts in developing Columbia student leaders.

The Office of Student Organizations and Leadership has chosen to model Leadership Initiatives for the 2019-2020 school year after the Social Change Model:

Established in 1994, the Social Change Model of Leadership Development approaches leadership as a purposeful, collaborative, values-based process that results in positive social change. The Social Change Model is sometimes called the seven C’s for Change because it espouses seven values of leadership that occur on three dimensions with the goal of positive social change (the eight “C”)
