Students at Saint Anselm are provided unlimited opportunities to become active participants and leaders in the campus community. Whether it's participating in any of the college's more than 100 student clubs, taking a leadership role in student government, or coordinating service projects through the student-led Meelia Center for Community Service, there are ample opportunities for students to take on leadership roles.

To enhance student leadership, students are invited to participate in the Emerging Leaders Program (ELP), a series of hands-on, interactive workshops open to students who want to broaden and develop their leadership and group-communication skills. As an ELP participant, you will learn more about yourself and your preferred leadership style (everyone has one) and how to apply your new leadership skills in everyday activities. ELP graduates use such experiences to strengthen their résumés, increase campus involvement, and lead more effectively on and off campus.
