Center for Leadership and Involvement

The Center for Leadership & Involvement (CfLI) is dedicated to supporting students as you develop your leadership capacity. CfLI’s programming is committed to the concept of leadership as the phenomenon of change in beliefs, values and behaviors. Programs are guided by the principle that leadership is an action-oriented endeavor and not necessarily based on position or level of authority. The Center’s leadership development programming focuses on engaging students in diverse experiences and nurtures the practice of reflection. This reflective approach enables students to make meaning of their experiences, learn from mistakes and re-apply successful behavior.

If you are considering a career or further study in the health professions healthcare organizations, graduate programs are looking for people who exhibit strong and diverse leadership skills. At CfLI, we believe leadership can be defined and measured for every individual and we can help you find your leadership style. Past students now working in the health professions have done this through our UW-Madison Leadership Certificate and participating in our leadership development programs.
