Leadership Development

Main content start
Students at BGSA event

Our students go on to become major leaders in countless fields. The Black Community Services Center develops their leadership skills and prepares them for life after Stanford. We also support more than twenty black volunteer student organizations (BVSOs) on campus and provide guidance to their executive teams and membership to help them reach their organization's goals.

We view leadership development as essential to our role and responsibility to the Stanford black community. Some of the ways it's fostered include:

  • Quarterly strategy meetings with BVSO leadership
  • Assisting BVSOs with their annual large-scale events such as the Black Student Union's High School Conference
  • Developing the strengths and talents of our student staff members
