Leadership is a relational process of inspiring, empowering, and influencing positive change

Chancellor’s Student Leadership Academy (CSLA)

CSLA is a premier leadership program designed to help emerging leaders develop valuable skills to inspire, empower, and influence positive change. Scholars participate in a 10-week program that includes weekly workshops designed to increase a student’s capacity and confidence to lead. Students with 21 credit hours or more are encouraged to apply to this program.


The Institute™, a program provided in partnership with LeaderShape® and East Carolina University, challenges participants to lead with integrity™ while working towards a vision grounded in their deepest values. Participants explore not only what they want to do, but who they want to be. Dynamic, challenging, and exciting, the experience is intended to produce a breakthrough in the leadership capacity of participants—benefiting them individually, as well as their respective communities and the organizations they will go on to lead and serve in the future.  The Institute is four days of dialogue and self-discovery in a supportive learning community.
