Leadership Quest Community
This community is sponsored by the Office of Civic Engagement, Leadership, & Service and is located in Center Hall on West campus. Our desire is to place students who are aspiring leaders or new to leadership positions together in a supportive and dynamic environment. We will provide residents with the opportunity to explore the value of service to the community and to increase their leadership potential through a diverse set of opportunities. In collaboration with other departments and organizations, this program will provide the advantage to get that leadership position you have been hoping for or make the kind of impact you want to make in your new position. This is a unique experience not available to every University of Louisville student, and SPACE IS LIMITED.
