Principles, Policies and Resources

You can make a mark on campus and in the community.

But before you start, make sure you understand our principles and policies.

    • Guiding Principles

      Vision: Our vision is a campus of student leaders who challenge themselves and their assumptions, leverage their talents and strengths, think critically about the problems facing people and organizations, and engage on a deep level with their communities.

      Mission: Our mission is to prepare students, through professional workshops and service-learning opportunities, to lead and serve the UB community and their own communities.

    • Core Values
      Integrity:  Personal integrity means being accountable for one’s actions, considering the ethical implications of challenging situations, and always maintaining the highest standards of conduct.

      Civic Responsibility: Leaders must demonstrate their commitment not only to their personal growth but to the growth and well-being of their communities. Great leaders give back to their communities through faithful service.

      Global Awareness: Leadership and service requires a deep appreciation for other cultures and other perspectives. We must not only embrace those who are different from us, but learn from and celebrate those differences.

      Personal and Professional Growth: We believe that learning is a lifelong journey and that, to be successful, we must develop professional skills, leverage our strengths, and nurture a healthy and balanced life.
