Kuyper College will equip you to become a Christian leader. You will learn to practice Christ-modeled leadership, which is relational, inclusive, empowering, purposeful and ethical. Kuyper will also prepare you to lead by taking responsibility for who you are, accepting where God has placed you, and using the skills He's given you to influence in the lives of others—for the Glory of God.
Student leadership positions are a great way to develop your gifts and talents, serve your college community and learn more about yourself, your peers and your God. We would love for you to get involved!
