Carolina Leadership Development

Carolina Leadership Development offers a variety of programs, services, and academic courses for all students interested in leadership at UNC. We are committed to serving the Carolina community by advocating for leadership as a process of social change.

Our mission is to support, encourage, and facilitate the individual development of all Carolina students such that they feel empowered to maximize their potential and lend their best selves to their various local and global communities.


Our vision is to reframe traditional definitions of leadership, in the belief that "good leadership" is necessary to unify community members in achieving the mission of the University and in the general pursuit of “betterness.”  The pursuit of such a state encourages the continued development of a campus thriving in a culture of leadership and assures congruence with the mission of the University.

We strive to realize this vision by:

  • providing theoretical and experiential learning opportunities for students by means of established programs; academic courses in leadership, ethics, and philosophy; personal and organizational consultations; and collaboration with students, staff, and faculty
  • applying the principles of congruent philosophy to contexts that lend greater insight into the relationships, systems, institutions, and customs that can benefit from the presence of good leadership as a key ingredient
  • serving as role-models of congruent ethics and philosophy
