Leadership Development

The purpose of SALD's Leadership Development Program is to empower Wesleyan students to increase their impact, not only as leaders but ultimately, as citizens of the world. By offering unique opportunities for leadership education, we strive to foster personal and group development while also enabling students to share this knowledge with their peers.

As student leaders you can both make use of these resources for your own personal development, and bring activities and programs to your organizations to help foster relationships, responsibility, and growth in your communities.
