Program Description

The Certified Student Leader program is an immersive experience that seeks to recognize and strengthen the leadership capacity of students while providing leadership and service opportunities for self-awareness and growth. These opportunities may be tailored to students' interests, many of which are offered over the course of the academic year. This program must be completed in one academic year.

Students can enroll in the program at the beginning of every semester (Aug.24 – Sept.30). This is an ideal opportunity for students to learn about leadership while allowing for the flexibility to accommodate their busy lives and schedules. Students who complete the program and are in good academic standing will receive a certificate and will have the certification notated on their academic transcript. Questions about the program? Email: leadandserve@fau.edu.

Orientations will start the week of Sept. 25 and Oct 2.

Students must submit their application of interest to have an orientation.

The Tracks that we offer through the Certified Student Leader program are Standard, Career, and Global.
