About Us


The Office of Leadership & Student Involvement

Located on the third Floor of the A.K. Hinds University Center, the Office of Leadership and Student Involvement is committed to providing students with opportunities to continually enhance their leadership skills and interests.  Through our curricular and co-curricular programs, WCU students will be exposed to a variety of leadership skills that will carry with them throughout their lives.

Through 175+ recognized student clubs and organizations, such as the Leadership Institute, Fraternity and Sorority Life, and the Student Government Association, or through programs such as the Freshman Leadership Institute, the Whee LEAD Conference, CatCamp, CAT Fair, CATalyst, or any one of the LEAD Living-Learning Communities (LLC’s), students will learn how to make a positive impact on campus and in the greater community.

The Office of Leadership and Student Involvement is also home to over 30 leadership development courses (LEAD) and the Leadership Minor. WCU is one of a select few colleges or universities that offer a Minor in Leadership. The Leadership Minor consists of a total of 18 credit hours (9 credit hour of elective courses and 9 required credit hours).
