“Stated simply: students learn by becoming involved.” —Astin

The Office of Student Engagement’s leadership experiences are designed to meet the varying levels of leadership development needs for you at WMU. It is our philosophy that leadership is not positional, but something that is developed. Our programs are designed to meet students wherever they are at on their self-defined leadership journey. The Leadership programs are co-curricular, meaning that the purpose is to add experiences, opportunities, and an added dimension to your life outside of the classroom. The ultimate goal is for us to help you develop leadership skills during your time at Western that you can transfer to your career and personal life.

LeadCorp is an RSO that develops leaders and empowers students. Through joining LeadCorp, students receive free leadership training and the opportunity to plan events based on their passions. Whether it is backpacking or anti-oppression work, the events that LeadCorp members bring to campus leave an impact on other students.
