The David and Wanda Brown Center For Leadership & Service
The David and Wanda Brown Center for Leadership and Service provides the structure and resources to prepare students to become productive citizens and assume roles of leadership and service in a culturally diverse and increasingly complex society. The Center fosters lifelong service and civic participation by engaging the University with its greater community in action, change and learning, and was founded on basic concepts of integration between leadership education and programs; community service and service learning; and community engagement.
The center offers a variety of programs and events to enhance student development and community outreach. Programs can range from one-time events or week-long service trips.
- Ambassadors: A select group of students that serve to promote the center and its mission on campus.
- LeadUF: A two and a half-day, overnight retreat that focuses on leadership competencies and gives students a chance to learn and practice leadership in the context of working with others.
- Florida Alternative Breaks: A student-run organization that sends alternative break trips of 14 students to do community service all across the state, nation and world.
- Projects for Peace: Win a $10,000 grant for a project proposal you submit working towards global peace.
- Days of Service: Days where students can come out and participate in giving back to the community for a few hours of their day.
