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 program committed to developing future leaders who practice the servant leadership philosophy. Participants 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 members of the program are competitively selected and awarded a $1,250 stipend each semester for successful completion of the program requirements.

In addition to the traditional stipend program, the Servant Leadership Program at CSU  includes the Associate Program. The Associate Program enables any student who is interested in leadership development to take the leadership seminars, participate in community service, and enjoy many of the same benefits that full students in the program do. As stipends become available in existing full member classes, associate students have the opportunity to apply for those openings in the program.
