Getting Involved at UCSB

The programs hosted by the Leadership Development Center are just a few of hundreds of opportunities for involvement and leadership development at UCSB. In addition to participating in the programs that fit their development interests, student leaders are encouraged to seek out other departmental, campus and community leadership opportunities. Listed below are some of our most frequent recommendations.


Campus Leadership Collective

Student Affairs maintains a directory of student leadership positions on campus. Of course, no list can exhaust the opportunities for involvement and leadership! You are encouraged to contact departments and organizations of interest or the staff of the Leadership Development Center to locate leadership opportunities.
