Community Partnerships

Community Engagement

Leadership is in the Topeka Community.

The Leadership Institute partners with organizations and projects throughout the community to create opportunities for students to affect change. Students often find their work in the community satisfies requirements for the Washburn Transformational Experience, Leadership Studies Certificate, and the Leadership Studies Minor. These partnerships also help students develop mentoring relationships with community leaders and create networking opportunities beneficial to their careers.

Community Partners are integral to the success of the Leadership Institute and its students.  Community members participate in our co-curricular programs and academic programs.  Community members representing nonprofit, business, education and government leaders make up our Advisory Board who provide guidance and advocacy for the Institute.
