  • Provides individuals an opportunity to be part of a diverse team of students that learns from each other.
  • Connects students with a network of current student leaders and Levis Leadership alumni that could lead to on-campus involvement and eventually job opportunities.
  • Levis Leadership Year I students will get the opportunity to move in early if they are living on-campus.
