Whether it be in or out of the classroom, on or off campus, in the local, broader, global community or beyond, students experience leadership in different settings.  At Bowie State University we recognize that all students engage in some activities that involve the practice of leadership.   

As such, the Office of Student Leadership coordinates campus wide efforts to ensure that all students are given the opportunity to develop and hone their leadership skills.  We are committed to enhance students' learning and to facilitate intentional opportunities for students to actively understand their experiences. 

We recognize the importance of students' participation in their own leadership development and offer specific programs and services to support this growth.

Leadership development opportunities are available to all students and student groups.
