Leadership is within us all.

The Center for Leadership, founded in fall 2020 under the direction of Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano, serves as a multidisciplinary leadership hub to support, connect, and elevate leadership programs, resources, and research across the university.

We exist to help all students reach their leadership potential, in alignment with the chancellor's strategic imperative of shaping tomorrow's leaders. We also engage faculty, staff, and the broader external community in their leadership development so they can have a greater impact around the world. As an incubator for scholarship on leadership, we seek to bolster rigorous interdisciplinary inquiry to showcase CU Boulder faculty research.

Mission & Vision

 Our mission is to invest in the leadership potential of all students and develop ethical, impactful leaders.

 Our vision is a world where leaders of character meet the needs of humanity.
