Leadership Programs


In so doing, we are preparing students to be values-congruent leaders who are committed to creating positive social change on campus, within the community, and as future Pioneers of the world.

A wide range of leadership education, development, and training opportunities are available at Transylvania. All are designed to complement your academic experiences, so that you can be a leader both in and outside the classroom.

Choose the type of involvement that's right for you. Whether you attend an overnight retreat, an hour-long workshop, or join a peer leadership team, our goal is to better prepare you for life after college while ensuring that your time on campus is both fun and meaningful.

Casey McBride: “That’s what coming to Transylvania is about. It’s about becoming a better person, not just a better student. There’s no question of feeling excluded on Transy’s campus.”
