The Office of Student Leadership and Engagement (OSLE) provides opportunities for students to engage, explore, and enhance their leadership capacity. By offering a variety of workshops, mentorship opportunities, trainings, and events, OSLE supports students throughout all stages and experiences in their leadership development. Drawing on the Social Change Model, we maintain that leadership is a skill that can be learned and developed over time. Furthermore, we view leadership as a process rather than a position, and believe that all students have the ability to affect positive change.

Regardless of where you are in your leadership journey, we are committed to developing co-curricular experiences that advance your leadership capacity both in and beyond Macalester.
