About the Program
Welcome to the website of the Carolina Leadership Initiative. Our goals are three-fold:
- to promote a vision for leadership development on the USC campus;
- to serve as a focal point and clearinghouse for information about leadership opportunities; and
- to catalyze the creation of new projects on campus related to leadership.
All our activities are designed to help students develop the motivation and the skills to make a positive difference in their local communities, throughout the state of South Carolina, and around our nation and world.
Wherever you want to pursue leadership development - in coursework, student governance, undergraduate research, internships, or international experiences - USC has opportunities for you. Our new Leadership Scholars program provides an especially exciting opportunity for students to pursue projects that benefit our university and community while networking with likeminded students and learning about cutting-edge scholarship on leadership.
Please join us in making a difference for the public good!
