Leadership Service Council

Leadership and Service Council

Join us on


The Leadership and Service Council (LSC) is an organization led by UAB students particularly interested in developing leadership skills that can be used in college and throughout the rest of their lives. The LSC challenges students to lead with integrity, and meets regularly to plan activities. Participating on the council can help any student find where his or her leadership skills lie, whether that is leading workshops on campus, planning and implementing retreats, or coordinating service projects for the entire UAB community. Events planned by the Leadership and Service Council include the Fall Leadership Conference, Down the Alley, Into the Streets, Hunger Banquet, Can Food Drive, Winter Leadership Retreat, Ongoing Service, Monthly Service Projects and more.

Learn how to be a leader for life with the student-led Leadership and Service Council. Take advantage of the group's activities, retreats, social change initiatives and service projects to identify and strengthen your skills—from creativity and personal improvement to involvement and community action. Any UAB student can and is encouraged to take part in the planned events.

To find out how to join, call the Office of Student Involvement at (205) 934-8020 or stop by Hill University Center Room 440. You will enjoy the opportunity to put your new knowledge to work by planning and coordinating the group's future activities.

The UAB Leadership Foundations program is a four stage interactive program geared to any student wanting to sharpen his or her leadership skills and get the most out of what student life at UAB has to offer. It promotes effective communication, teambuilding, self-discovery, problem-solving and the ability to make informed, ethical decisions all of which will help students become responsible citizens in their communities, the nation, and the world.

The Leadership Guild Book Club is a new approach to leadership by allowing students to engage in informal conversation about a chosen leadership book. Each Fall different campus leaders are invited to facilitate a discussion on an assigned chapter of the chosen book with the students and create an open dialogue of the major points of the chapters. Books are provided to the first 10 students who sign up for the semester as well as lunch which is provided for all participants during each meeting.

The group meets on Tuesdays at 12:15 pm in the Henley Room of the Mervyn Sterne Library.
