In keeping with Cal Lutheran's mission to educate leaders committed to service and justice, Civic Engagement and Leadership creates opportunities for students to develop their leadership skills and gain the experience needed to affect positive change. 

We strive to inspire and empower students to make a difference in their community and lead through civic engagement.
