Welcome to Leadership and Service within the University Commons and Student Involvement!
To be on a “quest” is to be on a journey or effort in pursuit of a goal or mission, one that is often lengthy, ambitious, or fervent. The symbolic heritage of the University of West Florida speaks strongly to the courageous quest that our students experience, and we believe that leadership development and community service is a part of that journey. We believe in the limitless possibilities of each UWF student. Because of this, we believe that leadership is learned and practiced. We believe that leadership is relational in nature. We believe that leadership is an ethic, a skill set, and a performance art. We believe that leadership is action. Finally, we believe that leadership is a process. Through our services, programs and initiatives, the Quest for Socially Responsible Leadership exists to help students understand their experiences, facilitate and enhance student learning, and to challenge our students to seek their limitless possibilities within the University and the larger community. The Quest for Socially Responsible Leadership is designed to be a partner in the leadership development of each University of West Florida student.
We envision a campus community in which students engage in authentic, responsible leadership for the betterment of their self, their organizations, and their communities.
Our staff is here to enhance the leadership development and community service experience at UWF.
