The Center for Service and Leadership (CSL) strives to enhance the student experience through active and diverse engagement opportunities in the community. These meaningful and experiential learning opportunities provide students the ability to enhance their leadership skills while becoming active, global citizens.

The Center is built upon the foundation that service is transformational for both individuals and communities. Established in 1993 to serve as a model for community-university partnerships, the CSL is located within The University of Alabama’s Division of Student Life. The CSL staff works continually to cultivate and maintain reciprocal partnerships with social action and community service agencies.
