True leaders effect change in their environments. The Christian understanding of service is the qualifying component of our understanding of leadership. A leader is determined not by title, position, popularity, or prestige but by whether or not that leader has empowered or diminished those he or she is entrusted with leading (Greenleaf, 1997).
In their first year, students will be expected to participate in a designated number of service opportunities. Opportunities will be available through the LEAD-LLC, Mentor Groups, and/or individually.
