Student Involvement designed a leadership program with the developmental needs and busy schedules of students in mind.

- Submit goals via Engage
- Complete a CliftonStrengths for Students assessment
- Participate in a coaching session
Students that successfully complete the certification program will be recognized at the annual Celebration of Student Leadership and Service held in April and will automatically be honored as a Profile in Leadership. Register for the LEGACY certification program.
