Lead and Serve at FAU invests in students to become change agents.
We are committed to providing an atmosphere that fosters learning, personal growth, and exploration of individual and group leadership and service skills. These ideals are consistent to that of the University's mission. We have an ideal program for you whether you are new to FAU, an established student leader, faculty or staff, or somewhere in between!
The LEAD & Service-Learning staff strives to assist students in developing their abilities surrounding four Guiding Principles:
Know - The Weppner Center guides Owls to discover knowledge garnered from curricular and co-curricular experiences to build a foundation for self-awareness.
- For example - What are values as a concept and why are they important to the leadership and service process?
Be - The Weppner Center enables Owls to process knowledge for self-discovery to create their purpose, cause or beliefs.
- For example - Now that a student understands what values are, they clarify their own values.
Do - The Weppner Center motivates Owls to align knowing and being through demonstrating their purpose and competencies developed through lead and serve programs in their communities as measured through reflection after the fact or, post-action.
- For example - Now that a student understands what values are and can articulate their own, they align their action with their values and go out in to the world showcasing this through their work.
Inspire – The Weppner Center encourages Owls who are competent in demonstrating Know. Be. Do. to mobilize others in their communities to create positive change.
- For example - By walking their talk, others are inspired to begin exploring walking their own talk.
