Programs and Events

The Office of Leadership Development welcomes any currently enrolled Temple University student to participate in events hosted by the department. 


The Office of Leadership Development provides leadership development, education, and training to all students at Temple University through the TU Diamond Leadership Program, the LeaderShape Institute and the Leadership Living Learning Community.

The Diamond Leadership Program is a multi-tiered program designed to increase student’s self-awareness, the capacity to lead groups and teams and contribute to the community.

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.


Annual Programs

Each year, the department hosts workshops, conferences and special events that our students have grown to love. While the type of event is consistent, the themes and formats continuously change with our growing student population. Our office works to bring best practices in teaching and learning, and delivering leadership information in a way that is educational, information and connects with students. We want to have a good time BUT we also want to make sure that every person walks away with more knowledge. 

  • DLP Socials (monthly-themed meetups that fill your mind and your stomach). 
  • Fall Student Leadership Conference 
  • Inclusive Leadership Conference (brings together one non-profit and 26 schools in the greater Philadelphia area and 500+ students)
  • Workshops (weekly 50-minute sessions on various topics related to developing leadership skills and abilities)r
