The LSAs are involved in a variety of community service opportunities and campus organizations, and exist to connect fellow students to leadership and service experiences. They present programs on a variety of topics related to leadership and service and also strive to serve community needs through education, service, and reflection. Contact the LSAs today to request a tailored service experience or leadership program.
