Leadership Conference

At Lander, we do a phenomenal job developing leaders to do amazing things for their communities. True leadership is about developing a VISION, celebrating the GROWTH, which in turn influences IMPACT. Join us as we continue to revision our position as leaders and “Learn how to Lander.” 


Civic Engagement

The Department of Student Activities at Lander University believes that the involvement of students in civic engagement is essential not just in enhancing their college experience but in developing skills that can be translated into the workforce. One of our values and objectives as a department is to form students into community leaders. At Lander University, students can be involved with the community through student organizations, community events, and individual acts of service.
