The mission of the Student Leadership Programs Knowledge Community is to serve as a resource for higher education professionals who have a professional interest in college student leadership training, education, and development. The Community will share best practices, provide critical evaluation of the field, examine standards for leadership programs, support national and regional efforts to develop student leadership programs, make contributions to the literature, recognize exemplary programs, and cultivate a forum for the presentation of new ideas.
