Service Leadership Initiative

Service Leadership at Foothill College

Congratulations to Foothill graduate and Newman Civic Fellow Eman Magzoub. She received the first ever Foothill College Presidential Service Leadership Award at this year's commencement ceremony on June 28, 2019.

Initiative Overview

Service leadership is Foothill College's unique vision for educating students while preparing them to be community and global leaders. Service leadership happens in and outside of the classroom, allowing students to feel more engaged in the college community, and to give back to our neighbors.

Projects are shared at venues throughout the year, culminating in the Research & Service Leadership Symposium where students, faculty and staff share their work with a broader audience. 

For the 17-18 academic year, Foothill College began the #60for60 Initiative, which coincided with the college's 60th anniversary.

Service leadership at Foothill College is built with these concepts:

Service Learning • Leadership Courses • Civic Engagement • Scholarship Research and Publication • 21st Century Skills (CTE) • Community Service • Equityservice leadership graphic
