Our Partners

The Office of Leadership Development works to provide leadership opportunities in all facets of a student’s time at Temple University.  Therefore, partnerships with various organizations and offices on and off campus are crucial to the success of our programs and students’ learning and development. The office is always looking for new partnership opportunities.  Please contact Lauren Bullock to learn more about a partnership with our office.

Therefore, any student that participates in Career Center professional development workshops or events will receive 5 Leadership Diamond Points per experience as part of the Student Leadership Challenge.

We also partner with the Career Center for our Leadership Lunch & Learn series, which allows students the opportunity to meet community leaders over a free catered lunch.
