The Cardinal Community Leaders is an initiative of the Ettling Center for Civic Leadership and provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to deepen and broaden their leadership capacity through service. The goal of this program is to expand the possibility for students to learn leadership skills from extended service experiences both locally and globally. The premise of this goal is that students can have greater potential for problem solving, civic engagement, and civic leadership only after having experienced and reflected upon meaningful service encounters.

The Cardinal Community Leaders is a leadership program that encourages students to develop civic leadership competencies and increase awareness of social justice issues from extended local and global service experiences . Participants are selected from the diverse UIW undergraduate population.
Cohort 4 members chose the following organizations as their volunteer sites: The Village at Incarnate Word, Each One-Teach One, The Witte Museum, Healy Murphy, Martinez Women’s Street Center, Prevent Blindness, and Headwaters. All students enrolled in the Social Justice Leadership course in Fall 2016 have been asked to register for the Social Justice Leadership lab in the spring semester. This will be the first time the Spring Leadership Lab will have been offered and taught. The purpose of the lab course is to help students further develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to become concerned, compassionate, enlightened, and effective leaders.
