Everyone is a Leader

Senior Haleigh Pannell, 2019-202 SGA President and the first woman of color to be SGA President

You bring something unique and valuable to Longwood’s campus and community and we're here to help you cultivate the leader in you! 

Whether you like it or not, there will be a day you will be called to lead.

Here's what we've heard students experience when they work with us, they 

  • Understand themselves and others better
  • Learn how to effectively communicate and collaborate
  • Develop new Professional and Life skills 
  • Engage with different types of people and cultures
  • Participate in Reflective and Integrative Learning
  • Practice Civic Engagement 

Leadership 101 Series

Students participate in a group Leadership 101 series session

Leadership is like a muscle, if you don't “exercise” your leadership, it will atrophy.

Develop your leadership potential and make a commitment to learn and practice leadership skills with us.

Leadership 101 will address:

  • Goal Setting
  • Recruitment & Retention
  • Professionalism
  • Resiliency

Students talk at the involvement fair

What does it mean to be a Citizen Leader? 

A Citizen Leader is someone who is:

  • Prepared to make positive contributions to the common good of society
  • A Lifelong Learner, who lives congruently with their values
  • Makes and Nurtures connections in their communities

Longwood recognizes our own Citizen Leaders each spring with Awards!
