Any student can be a leader in some way or another so a variety of avenues for skills building is offered. Reinhardt University offers several programs aimed at developing student leadership on campus. Not only do we provide many opportunities for students to serve in formal leadership roles, we also provide an ongoing series of leadership seminars designed to increase leadership skills in targeted areas.
The Reinhardt University Leadership Academy (RULA) seeks to empower students to develop lifelong leadership skills that can be utilized within diverse educational, social and business settings. The Office of Student Activities offers a number of leadership development opportunities, which include conferences, lectures, seminars and workshops. Through participating in various leadership events, students have the opportunity to apply leadership skills on and off campus.
