As UCM's academic curriculum prepares students to be leaders inside the classroom, Student Activities' leadership programs help students to cultivate leadership skills outside of the classroom. Together both opportunities help UCM students become competent leaders beyond their college careers and into their professional endeavors.
At the University of Central Missouri, we believe everyone has the potential to engage in the leadership process and that each individual has unique talents, ideas, and gifts to contribute. We understand leadership to be a values-based, inclusive process in which people work collaboratively to accomplish common goals promoting positive social change. We strive to provide students with high-quality, engaging opportunities that will enhance their leadership capacity, help them gain confidence in their abilities as leaders, and develop skills and knowledge that will support their efforts to create positive change in the world
