Leadership Development and Social Action

The Leadership Development and Social Action Team is dedicated to helping students engage in effective leadership for positive change within the Duke, local, and global communities. Team LDSA conducts seminars and workshops for students and staff on various topics and facilitates personal and professional development tools such as DiSC, the Life Values Inventory and StrengthsFinder. Our work is founded in the Duke University Leadership Framework.

You may know us specifically through programs and resources like LeaderShape, the Alternative Breaks Program, The Leadership at Duke Guidebook, and the ACC Leadership Conference. The many opportunities we offer are designed to enhance one’s knowledge, skills, and actions involving leadership development and social action.
