The Marvin Center for Student Leadership: Be the Change, Lead the Change

Leadership is learned. The Marvin Center for Student Leadership guides, engages, and teaches students to achieve true leadership abilities.

We use mentors, teachers, and community leaders to help students develop this lifelong skill. It is a skill our students use today in their classrooms, in student organizations, and in the community. It is a skill that becomes a part of who they are and who they will become.

Inclusive Leadership Certificate

The Inclusive Leadership Certificate (ILC), offered by the C. Raymond Marvin Center for Student Leadership and the Office of Multicultural Affairs, is a foundational program that will help you develop the attitudes, knowledge, and skills for inclusive leadership in an increasingly diverse world. Employers are looking for leaders who value & develop inclusive leadership skills. This is a perfect way to incorporate that competency into your leadership toolkit, meet people who share your interests, and contribute to making BGSU a more inclusive community. These sessions are foundational and aimed at providing introductory context to the multiple aspects of being an inclusive leader. All voices, experiences, and perspectives are appreciated and welcome in our conversations.
