The Center for Leadership was founded in fall 2020 under the direction of Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano. The center unites over 30 leadership programs across campus to support programming and research. Leadership transcends all schools and colleges, as well as the Division of Student Affairs, student organizations and athletics. Aligning our leadership programs to seamlessly harness the expertise of departments throughout the university, the center stands apart from any leadership program in the country. Additionally, the center will serve as a hub for scholarship on leadership that promotes and encourages rigorous interdisciplinary inquiry while showcasing CU Boulder faculty research.
