Welcome to the
Weppner Center for LEAD & Service-Learning

Registration is now open for our Academic Service-Learning Institute: Fall Into the Leader You Are

The Weppner Center for LEAD & Service-Learning will empower students to lead and serve their communities in and out of the classroom. 

LEAD & Serve is committed to providing an atmosphere that fosters learning, personal growth, and exploration of individual and group leadership skills. These ideals are consistent to that of the University's mission.  We have the perfect program for you whether you are new to FAU, an established student leader, faculty or staff, or somewhere in between!

The LEAD & Service-Learning staff strives to assist students in developing their abilities surrounding three Guiding Principles:

Know - The Weppner Center guides Owls to discover their purpose, cause or belief to build a foundation in self-awareness. The Why.  

Be - The Weppner Center enables skill development by empowering Owls to create a framework and make their purposes tangible by sharing with others. The How. 

Do - The Weppner Center inspires Owls to mobilize and breathe life into their purpose, cause, or belief to lead and serve their communities. The What.

Every month, LEAD & Service-Learning will spotlight one special student leader who has really demonstrated their ability to liberate the leader in other students. For this month's spotlight, we have chosen….
