Leadership and Student Engagement
Supported by a private donor, the Leadership and Student Engagement (LSE) is dedicated to providing all University of Calgary students with the opportunity to develop their leadership identities. We provide a well-rounded university experience from first-year through to graduation.
Whether you’re an established leader or just starting out, our programs support the development of leaders who can harness their unique strengths to achieve meaningful success, contribute to their communities and overcome challenges. Join us for workshops, Camp LEAD outdoor leadership programs, our annual Leadership Exchange conference, advising and much more.
Transitions, such as starting university, are part of the student experience, and we want you to be successful. Fall Orientation Week is designed to help you thrive academically, personally and socially. Throughout the year our First Year Council provides feedback on the student experience.
We want you to feel inspired, engaged and empowered to act within your community. Whether you’re a seasoned volunteer or looking to get involved, we offer programs from one day service projects in Calgary to intensive explorations of social issues through ucalgarycares at home, in Toronto, New Orleans, Costa Rica and the Yukon.
Developing a supportive network of friends and mentors will enrich your time on campus. Our Student Life programs foster a sense of community and connectedness with drop-in programming from the weekly meet-up style Unwind events, to Last Lecture series, Frostbite and the end-of-year UCalgaryStrong Festival.
