The Haas Center is committed to developing students as thoughtful, skilled, and reflective practitioners equipped to effect positive social change.
Everyone has the potential to exercise leadership, whether in formal positions or not. Our goal is to have students understand what is involved in ethical and effective leadership, and to assess and develop their own abilities so that they are more confident and able to provide leadership when in situations requiring it. The Haas Center offers several programs for students involved in service to develop their leadership skills.
