Leading... Serving... Growing

Servant Leadership is created on a foundation of love and compassion, where power and authority are used to benefit the whole of an organization, encouraging individuals to grow and achieve autonomy.

Servant Leadership at CSU is a comprehensive undergraduate program committed to developing future leaders who practice the servant leadership philosophy. The students in our program are called fellows. Our fellows are given the opportunity to develop leadership skills through exciting and innovative leadership classes, hands-on modeling of leadership practices, participation in community service projects, and much more. Scholarship students are competitively selected and awarded a $1,250 stipend each semester for successful completion of the program requirements.

The Servant Leadership Program at CSU includes non-stipend students as well. The non-stipend students participate in the leadership seminars, participate in community service, and enjoy all of the same benefits that the stipend students in the program do, they just do not receive any scholarship dollars. As stipends become available, non-stipend students have the opportunity to apply for those openings in the program.
