Leadership Opportunities


At WKU there are many chances to grow as a leader.  Here we have listed activities and events across campus!


"The LeaderShape Institute® challenges participants to lead with integrity while working towards a vision grounded in their deepest values. Participants explore not only what they want to do, but who they want to be.

Dynamic, challenging, and exciting, the week is intended to produce a breakthrough in the leadership capacity of participants — benefiting them individually, as well as their respective communities and the organizations they will go on to lead and serve in the future."

Leadership and Volunteerism

Student Activities promote several opportunities for Leadership and volunteering. Be sure to check this out to keep updated on new events and programs.

Dynamic Leadership Institute:

"The Dynamic Leadership Institute, known to many as DLI, is designed to teach students the interpersonal skills and knowledge needed to engage in various leadership roles on campus, within the community, and in their futures.  Each of the four phases allows the student to view leadership from different perspectives and provides opportunities to examine and enhance their skills. DLI is not for academic credit, but rather for self-exploration and personal development.  DLI is a 6-week, 1-hour per week commitment per semester."

Leadership 2016 Conference at WKU:

"Are you wanting to learn what it takes to become a successful leader?  All students are encouraged to join us as we become leaders who "Take it to the Top" by developing different skills during this one day conference. Your day will consist of three sessions of your choice with a Keynote to follow.  Breakfast and lunch will be included, along with a t-shirt!"

If you are interested in joining a club/honor society/organization @ WKU a full list can be found here.

There are excellent opportunities to become a leader within these organizations, or even to start your own organization.  Getting involved on campus is a wonderful way to network, make connections, and find what you are passionate about, as well as to add to your resume!  Be sure to check out Student Activities for all the news, updates, and groups!
