NASPA Lead Initiative



"Action indeed is the sole medium of expression for ethics."

- Jane Addams

Learning leadership is a process of discovering one's potential to work effectively with others and to put into practice one's best intuitive plan to help a team reach a goal. With our campus and Chicago as vibrant backdrops, UIC students learn about leadership in a variety of ways:

  • special-topic and skill-building workshops;
  • topical consultations and presentations;
  • annual conferences and campus institutes;
  • case study competitions;
  • guest speakers and lectures;
  • student organization development projects;
  • experiential learning opportunities; and
  • non-credit classroom-based instruction (coming soon)!

Our variety of opportunities help students achieve stated learning outcomes, which include understanding the differences between true leadership and management and ways to put theoretical knowledge into useful practice in daily academic and professional life.

Our staff serves in an advisory capacity to various student groups and organizations on the UIC campus, and supports students who learn leadership through their roles in:
  • University Student Ambassadors;
  • Golden Key International Honour Society;
  • Dance Marathon at UIC; and
  • UIC Council of Service Organizations (COSO).
