Holden Center for Leadership and Community Engagement
Erb Memorial Union, Suite 47
The Holden Center helps prepare students to be positive contributors on campus, within the community, and globally. The center provides opportunities for students to develop as leaders and citizens, regardless of their previous experience or exposure to leadership roles. Members of the center's multidisciplinary staff work directly with students to increase their leadership efficacy and capacity, explore their strengths and passions, teach them new skills and effective practices, help involve them in productive collaborations, and increase their chances of success as agents of change.
Many entry points and opportunities exist for students to get involved at the center, including advising, mentorship, teaching, and experiential programming, with space for students to grow and excel as leaders, get involved with the community, find solutions to problems, and improve the future. These efforts include workshops on identifying individual talents and group effectiveness; volunteer opportunities to help students cultivate their involvement in the local community; service-based trips regionally and internationally; and an intensive leadership development institute.
