Social Change and Leadership

Social Change & Leadership Education is a broad component supported by all areas of Student Activities & Leadership Development.

The office of Student Activities & Leadership Development supports the mission of the University of Cincinnati by working to create an inclusive environment that celebrates diversity and enhances students' ability to become global citizens. SALD works to equip students with the following competencies:
