What is Leaders in Service (LIS)?11903889_10203587447161571_5981799072161026892_n

The Civic and Community Engagement Center’s Leaders in Service program allows incoming first-year and transfer students the opportunity to get involved with service projects, political engagement, and leadership opportunities at Ramapo before their first semester begins.

How will LIS help me get involved at Ramapo?

Through LIS, a week-long program that starts before the other first-year students move in, students have a chance to connect with each other before the fall semester starts. They form friendships and create partnerships with community organizations, on and off-campus. In addition, students are introduced to many leadership opportunities throughout a variety of campus organizations and clubs.

Students who complete the LIS summer session are able to attend monthly workshops during the academic year covering topics on civic engagement, leadership development, and skill-building.

  • Learn about the impact of civic engagement & how to get involved in your community
  • Develop leadership skills as an incoming first-year student
  • Become active in the Ramapo community as a primary step toward future success
  • Make a difference within community service and civic leadership events

The cost of Leaders in Service is $75. This fee covers the opening reception/dinner on the first evening for you and 2 guests, all of the activities during the program, all meals, your LIS t-shirt, and water bottle, and monthly activities
