Engagement, Leadership, and Service

The Engagement, Leadership, and Service (ELS) department within the UGA Division of Student Affairs believes the student experience outside the classroom is a pivotal part of an enriched collegiate experience. Within the ELS, students can join and create student organizations, participate in and lead service opportunities, engage with leadership trainings and content, coordinate or attend multiple events, and so much more.
