The Leadership for Life Service Wing, also known as L4L, is a service and leadership community within Lincoln Residence Hall. Freshmen admitted to L4L live together, take a class together, and commit to doing service together. Students focus on service in five core areas including: Civic Engagement, Youth and Education, Sustainability, Public Health, and Hunger and Homelessness. The purpose of the program is to provide a positive environment through which new students can take the first steps toward a lifelong commitment to community involvement.
After the freshman year, L4L members become eligible for positions on the Executive Board and as Committee Chairs for each of the core service areas. Executive Board Members work with the Volunteer and Civic Engagement Center to steer the overall program. Committee Chairs work throughout the year to create and implement service projects in their respective core area. These positions provide students to enrich their service experience by becoming leaders among their peers.
