Hamline University, Minnesota’s first university, labels its students as trailblazers, champions of justice, and innovators who are determined to do all the good they can. 

To develop students who are community-minded, Hamline implemented the Student Leader Selection program. This program is a collaboration of student affairs offices that gives exceptional students the opportunity to “impact campus in real and positive ways with leadership and campus community engagement.” This allows students to develop their leadership skills and to see how action can shape their community. 

Leadership opportunities include The Day at the Capitol, where students participate in the legislative process by encouraging state legislators to support the State Grant Program, as an example of showing students how action and leadership influences the world around them. 

Hamline University also offers other specific leadership development opportunities. One example of these tailored experiences includes the Women’s Leadership Retreat. This retreat explores “social consciousness, self-awareness, and leadership skills” through the lens of issues faced by female leaders. Hamline University offers many leadership-focused programs. 

Hamline University students put their leadership skills into action through student organizations and clubs. This, again, allows students to see how their actions can lead to change. A few examples of student organizations include: “Hamline Students for Reproductive Rights,” “Students Preventing Sexual Violence,” and “Women Boss Up.”

Hamline University’s mission is to create “a diverse and collaborative community of learners,” with the hope of developing the leaders and scholars of the future.
