  • empower emerging leaders with essential skills to increase personal growth as well as overall effectiveness as a leader;
  • create various opportunities for cross-organizational interaction and relationship building;
  • provide opportunities for students to apply leadership experiences to positions beyond the University of Georgia;
  • and establish a network of leadership scholars to return and invest in future student leaders at the University of Georgia.

Tate Leadership Scholars are advocates for all student organizations registered within the Center for Student Organizations. These students strive to enhance awareness of the Tate Student Center and the Center for Student Organizations throughout the campus, building interest, pride and enthusiasm for future generations of student leaders and alumni.
