Are You a Leader?

We firmly believe that you are! Every person has the capacity to be a leader. We offer various programs throughout the academic year to ensure that every CSUMB student has the opportunity to develop their own leadership identity. Leadership is an important university learning outcome and something that all employers are looking for in applicants. Be sure to take advantage of all we have to offer to help make yourself the best you can be.

Our flagship programs are described above in the "Leadership Opportunities" section of this website, but be sure to keep looking at the event feed below so that you don't miss anything that we promote. Any questions, suggestions, or ideas can be directed to studentactivities@csumb.edu.
