Abstract

Focusing on leadership through collective dialogue and service, the Chavez-King Leadership Institute at Central Washington University is committed to developing student leaders by means of experiential learning opportunities, exploration of real-world issues and continuous self-analysis and reflection. Embracing the legacy and philosophy of civil rights activists Cesar E. Chavez and Martin Luther King Jr., members will continue the vision of connecting leaders to their communities while broadening their knowledge base related to advocacy, policy and public support. The cohort, comprised of 14 leaders across a variety of disciplines will take you through a journey founded on the institute’s four core principles: mentorship, public service, leadership development and commitment to social justice. After attending this session, the audience will learn more about the personal impact service learning continues to play in college student retention, involvement and overall experience at Central Washington University. Join us as we screen a short documentary about our time in the cohort, the friends who have become family and the organizations we have had the privilege to serve.
