What We Do
Purpose of Our Programming
Our office believes that continued learning and partnership with the community is necessary to make each student the most effective leader possible. Learning, growing and leading with the Office of Leadership Development allows students to: find purpose, set goals, take action, and get results.
While other leadership programs focus on formal leadership roles within a group or team, our office focuses on the individual as a leader. We work to help students identify how they lead in student organizations, classroom settings, business and community organizations.
One Office, Four Initiatives
Our office aims to develop the leadership skills of the Temple community through programming, seminars, conferences and partnerships. We do so through our four initiatives, which are: Academic Connections, the TU Diamond Leadership Program, the LeaderShape Institute, and the Leadership Living Learning Community.
Diamond Leadership Program
The DLP is a multi-tiered leadership initiative designed for continual engagement in leadership development. Each tier focuses on an important element of the Social Change Model of Leadership Development and incorporates the Five Leadership Challenge principles.

LeaderShape Institute at Temple University
The LeaderShape Institute is an intensive, energizing, and unique six-day experience that involves self-discovery and learning from practical experiences that build leadership capacities. It is intense fun in a relaxed learning environment. Through this experience Temple students begin to see that leadership is a process – one that LeaderShape defines as a commitment to leading with integrity that results in extraordinary change by living in a state of possibility.
LeaderShape registration begins in January and the LeaderShape Institute takes place in May, after the end of the academic year.
