»Support Tomorrow's Leaders

The vision of Chapman University’s Leadership Studies Program within the LEAD Center is to be a national and international resource and model in higher education for developing individual servant-leaders and transforming Leadership Award Recipientinstitutions into servant-led communities.  We will support this vision by offering programs and conducting research which allow the ideal of service – sustained by the soul, emboldened by the heart, and informed by the mind – to be thoughtfully, intentionally, and caringly translated into organizational reality: One action at a time, one person at a time, one institution at a time.

Our specific mission is to support the development and practice of servant-leadership for college and secondary-school students (first and foremost), but also among managers and executives from the private, public, and non-profit sectors through outreach education, training, and programs.  Consistent with Chapman University’s vision of creating integrative programs that extend beyond the boundaries of the classroom, the LEAD Center offers opportunities for renewal and transformation directed at all levels of institutional functioning: individual managers, intact work teams, and entire organizations; individual teachers, client departments, and entire universities.
