The Center for Servant Leadership

Building the desire, skills, and capacity to serve first, then to lead

The Center for Servant Leadership welcomes you to discover how you’ll answer the Gustavus invitation to “Make Your Life Count.”

The college years—and your whole life—are not about just going through the motions, faster and faster, scrambling after “more.” They are about living deeply into a life of meaning, passion, and purpose, a life of courageous integrity and authentic connection, a life that makes a positive difference for those around you and for the communities and the planet we share. Weaving together four areas of emphasis—career development, vocational reflection, community-based service and learning, and engagement with church and community partners – the Center’s many programs and resources help you to explore your calling to learn, live, and lead “from within” in ways that serve others and help to address the world’s deep needs. Centrally located on the main level of the Johnson Student Union, the Center is the “campus living room,” the place to gather for great conversation about things that matter and where you can turn as you discover how to make your life count.
