Leadership Development at UAF

We offer opportunities for emerging to experienced leaders to expand their leadership toolboxes; join us for our annual UAF Leadership Conference or participate in one of our monthly leadership development activities where you will have the opportunity to interact with campus and community leaders and reflect on your own leadership experiences.

Social Change Model of Leadership Development

 The Social Change Model approaches leadership as a purposeful, collaborative, values-based process that results in positive social change.image 87

The Social Change Model was built upon the following assumptions:

  • Leadership is concerned with effecting change on behalf of others and society.
  • Leadership is collaborative.
  • Leadership should be value-based.
  • All students (not just those that hold formal leadership positions) are potential leaders.
  • Service is a powerful vehicle for developing students' leadership skills.
