students working on project

Leaders seek to understand.

Together, students learn skills, deepen their understanding of themselves and discover their strengths for creating positive social change.

Students in the Leadership Community live with change-makers who are passionate about building stronger communities. But you don’t need to be your student government president to step in.

We'll build knowledge and practice useful skills for taking action in interactive workshops, discussions, and community-based projects offered regularly. You'll explore your interests and find an impact area that pulls you in—whether it's making meals with the Campus Kitchen Project, organizing a Relay for Life team, or creating something new.

  • New first-time, first-year students will enroll in a one-credit seminar, EDHI 096—Leadership for Social Change, during the fall semester.
  • Current UVM students living in the Leadership Learning Community neighborhood will have the option to apply for an enhanced experience. If admitted, students will receive additional benefits, including priority for room selection, special programming options, leadership opportunities, and possibly an option to enroll in a seminar and earn credit. (More information about how to apply for the enhanced experience will be made available in January.)
