Leadership & Service Ambassadors

Who are the LSAs?

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 Services Do LSAs Provide?

The LSAs provide two primary services to the campus and Knoxville community:

  1. Present/facilitate programs to hundreds 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 conflict management.
  2. Plan and carry out service events for students in areas including food insecurity, education, environmental sustainability, global issues, civil rights, and health care.


Any student, faculty/staff member, or community partner can request a service experience or a customized program from the LSAs through their workshop listings and request form. Here are a few recent programs:

  • Conflict Management
