Leadership & Service Council

The Leadership and Service Council is a student led organization designed to promote volunteerism, conscientious citizenship, and leadership development through the planning and execution of signature university programs.

Our vision is to provide service based opportunities for students that combine elements of social change and civic engagement to develop socially responsible leaders that support UAB and the surrounding communities.

The Leadership and Service Council will work collaboratively with campus and community partners to plan, market, and execute signature service events which include Into the Streets, Rise Against Hunger, MLK Day of Service, and Blazers on Break. 

As a result of membership within LSC, students will:

  • Successfully plan, market, and execute large signature service programs
  • Work collaboratively with council members to achieve programming goals and outcomes through execution of service events
  • Develop transferable leadership skills that will enhance overall engagement inside and outside of the classroom
  • Use appropriate technology to support marketing and promotion of events to UAB students, staff, and faculty

Skill Development

  • Practical Leadership & Management Skills
  • Social Leadership & Responsible Citizenship
  • Critical Thinking & Problem Solving
  • Cultural Humility
  • Professionalism
