Student Leadership and Service (SLS)

About Us

Our Mission

Student Leadership and Service (SLS) is an experiment in community. With a focus on racial equity and social justice, we connect students and other stakeholders for service-learning and community engagement.

Our Theoretical Foundations

SLS utilizes the Leadership Model for Social Change as a guide for our work. Through this model we understand leadership to be values-based, collaborative action toward positive social change. The primary themes of this model are shown below.
