Leadership Development

Who we are and what we do

We provide leadership development, education, and training to all students at Temple through four main initiatives, the Student Leadership Challenge, the Diamond Leaders program, Leadershape and Academic Connections.

Student Leadership Challenge

The program encompases a variety of activities to help students explore their leadership style and help effectively communicate that style when working within class groups or student organizations, seeking internships and jobs, and preparing for a professional career following graduation.

Diamond Leaders

The Diamond Leaders are a distinguished team of Temple students who Learn, Grow, and Lead with integrity. To apply for the Diamond Leader program, you must complete the application process. Learn more about the application process.


The LeaderShape Institute is an intensive, energizing, and unique six-day experience that involves self-discovery and learning from practical experiences that build leadership capacities.

Academic Connections

The office works to both create and instruct leadership courses and build connections amongst the various Schools, Colleges, and faculty that offer existing leadership-related courses.
