Leaders in Service

The Department of Residential Life and the Division of Student Success Present Leaders in Service

What is the Leaders in Service (LIS) Program?

The Leaders in Service Program aims to place “the world within reach” by immersing students in community service so that it becomes a part of their way of life, and so that they become lifelong servants in their communities, wherever they are in the world. LIS is a community service and learning program designed for University at Albany students, faculty, and staff, with a focus on frosh in residence. LIS seeks leaders to serve with other participants who are passionate about service. Leaders engage in service projects, leadership development opportunities, and mentorship opportunities.

What are Leaders charged to do?

Leaders are charged to reach beyond the University’s borders to engage in the local community and beyond through high-impact service projects created in shared vision with community partners, students, administrators, and faculty members.

How do Leaders Serve?
