Standing Team on Leadership Excellence

The Standing Team on Leadership Excellence (STLE) in partnership with The Office of Student Leadership Development (OSLD) is charged with creating a leadership training, education, and development strategy based on valid leadership development principles and practices. The result will be a shared vision of leadership for Vanderbilt students that is aligned with the Office of the Dean of Students’ (DoS) mission and purpose.

Our goal is to achieve greater alignment throughout DoS in the area of student leadership development by creating a shared vision and common definition of leadership that will guide DoS efforts.

The Standing Team on Leadership Excellence will work closely and collaboratively with the Office of Student Leadership Development to achieve the aforementioned goal.  The faculty, staff and students who compose the team will serve as campus partners and champions for leadership engagement at Vanderbilt.  Each functional area within the Office of the Dean of Students, an invited Vanderbilt faculty member, and selected students will have a voice in the confirmation of our Philosophy, creation of our Leadership Model, and development of our new leadership programs.

Below is a list of our campus partners who serve as members of the Standing Team on Leadership Excellence.  We also have a team of engaged students who serve to engage our community in leadership development.  Please visit our Student STLE page to learn more about them.
