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 and the Leadership Studies Certificate. 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 all of our Leadership In Action programs and activities. Community members representing nonprofit, business, education and government leaders make up our Advisory Board who provide guidance and advocacy for the Institute.
