About this Campaign

2021 Legacy of Leadership 

The Legacy of Leadership is a fundraising initiative for the Student Affairs Leadership Development Fund. This fund supports a variety of student leadership development initiatives, including training and development for paraprofessional staff, such as:

  • Career ambassadors,
  • Leadership consultants,
  • Orientation leaders,
  • Peer educators,
  • Peer mentors,
  • Rambassadors,
  • Resident assistants,
  • Sykes student staff;

programs for both emerging leaders and student organization executive board members; and conferences offering topics such as social justice, career development, financial literacy, bystander intervention, and anti-hazing.

In lieu of an in-person fundraising dinner this year, we are conducting a day of giving to support this fund.
