Based on the philosophy of Vince Lombardi's quote, "Leaders aren't born, they are made and they are made just like anything else, through hard work," Levis Leadership is a selective program that enhances and nurtures the leadership development of its students over the course of four years. 

Each year, up to 40 incoming freshmen, out of hundreds of applicants, are selected for this experiential scholarship program and have the opportunity to participate for up to four years of leadership development. During their first year, Levis Leadership students participate in an exciting and interactive College Student Leadership Development class each semester.  The Levis Leadership program helps students learn and develop the skills and knowledge that contribute to effective leadership. The purpose of the program is to provide the selected group of students with leadership education and training which provides limitless possibilities for growth and development.
