The Leadership and Service Ambassadors (LSAs) are a group of student leadership and service educators dedicated to serving the campus and community. They work to connect fellow students to leadership and service experiences. What can LSAs do for you? The LSAs can present programs on a variety of topics related to leadership and service and strive to serve community needs through education, service and reflection.
What Services Do LSAs Provide?
The LSAs present programs to thousands of students each year on a wide variety of topics including servant leadership, planning community service projects, team building, leadership styles, diversity and inclusion, and understanding community needs. They plan and carry out service events for students in areas including hunger and homelessness, literacy, the environment, global issues, women’s issues, and health care. Additionally, the LSAs offer Leadershops (leadership workshops) each semester in a variety of areas such as social justice understanding and how to be a good volunteer.
Any student, faculty or staff member, or community partner can request a service trip or a customized program or presentation from the LSAs through their workshop listings and request form. Here are a few recent audiences and programs:
