Mission and Program Overview

In support of the College’s overall mission, the Hess Center for Leadership and Service encourages individuals to realize their full leadership potential so that they can contribute to the communities that matter to them.  Guided by the assumption that anyone can lead, Hess Center programming enables participants to understand, analyze and practice leadership.
