Welcome to the Department of Student Leadership (DSL) at Kennesaw State University

The Department of Leadership (DSL) believes everyone has the capacity to lead.  Leadership is not about position, it is about moments and what we do in those moments.  Leadership is how we use and apply our knowledge, skills, experiences, and identities, to positively affect the lived experiences of ourselves AND others.  Through a variety of co-curricular and extra-curricular programs DSL expands learning beyond the classroom, enhancing students’ ability to be successful in their personal, academic, and professional endeavors. Students participating in DSL programs and activities develop their personal capacity to serve others and engage with real world problems. 

Core programs and activities include but are not limited to:

  • Civic Engagement Team
  • Engaged Owl Leaders
  • Odyssey Peer Mentoring
  • Conferences, workshops, and special events
  • Constitution Week
  • Custom leadership development for Student Government Association, Registered Student Organizations, and other groups throughout the university
