As the acronym implies, leadership students are required to take an active role in a campus organization of some kind (e.g., team, club, committee, etc.); alternatively, students may design and execute a unique project on campus. The purpose of these "service" projects is to put into practice, for the benefit of the campus community, the valuable tools learned in the ► "Hero's Journey"during the preceding year.
