The GLLead Student Challenge is a leadership competency development program based on the principles outlined in Leadership for a Better World: Understanding the Social Change Model of Leadership by Susan Komives and Wendy Wagner. It is a multifaceted program focused on recognizing student leaders, training student leaders, and offering opportunities for students to participate in outside leadership programs.


One Student Leadership Network. Action-Oriented. Unlimited Potential.


The GL Lead Student Challenge recognizes students displaying leadership through their extra-curricular engagement. These are students proving that leadership is a relational process and not limited to positions.

The challenge will invite you to explore the concepts of Leadership and how they can apply in your university life. Students who participate in the workshops will receive a certificate of Attendance for attending a workshop and a certificate of completion for attending all workshops. Students who participate in the challenge will have a chance to win gifts and prizes including a trip to one of two summits!
