What does it mean to pursue a college education?
People come to college for many reasons: to immerse themselves in academics, to follow their passions, to become socially connected, and to explore careers. Ideally, college culminates in readiness for the “real world.” But to be truly prepared upon graduation means possessing more than academic skills and strong social networks. These are only pieces of a larger puzzle.
You can create a life beyond college that is meaningful and successful if you focus on bettering yourself and your community. The Rochester Center for Community Leadership offers opportunities to achieve that by developing your leadership, exploring experiential learning, engaging politically, and connecting with your community.
The staff in the Center is dedicated to supporting you throughout this transformative process. We look forward to connecting with you.
