Leadership Development

Leadership and service are at the very core of Illinois College’s mission: “True to its founding vision in 1829, Illinois College is a community committed to the highest standards of scholarship and integrity in the liberal arts. The College develops in its students qualities of mind and character needed for fulfilling lives of leadership and service.”


The wide variety of student activities programs directly affects the lives of our students and complements academic programs through development of, exposure to and participation in a variety of activities and leadership opportunities. The amount of energy - both physical and psychological - that students expend at college has shown to positively affect their development.

The Office of Student Activities encourages and works with individual and various campus groups on developing leadership skills. Individual and group consultation is available along with leadership training through workshops and other programs.
