In the late 90's, members of the CSU family (faculty, staff, and administration) discovered a need for leadership development on campus. Also during this time, there was a surge of interest among members of the community led by Mr. William B. Turner, who believed that servant leadership would present the new leadership needed to foster collaboration and growth in Columbus.
In 1999, the leadership vision of Columbus State University and President Frank Brown merged with the vision of Mr. Turner, and the Servant Leadership Program was born. The need for leadership development at the college level was combined with the leadership needs of the community, resulting in a 4-year comprehensive program that incorporates leadership theory, practice, experiential learning, modeling, and mentoring.
Transforming the world by empowering students and others to lead with a lifelong commitment to service.
Through a widely-recognized community and university collaboration, the Columbus State University Servant Leadership Program provides students with learning experiences that create growing, self-aware, well-balanced, and insightful servant leaders, enriching the community and the world, while serving as a model for others to follow.
