Wurtele Center for Leadership

Group of students outside holding letters to spell out the word "activism"

In our work with students, faculty, and staff, the Wurtele Center for Leadership embraces and advocates for a collaborative approach to leadership. We strive to empower members of the Smith community with an understanding that they can lead from any vantage point, whether they hold positional power or not. At the same time, we recognize and seek to dismantle the power structures that produce inequities in leadership. We design workshops, programs, talks, partnerships with other campus units, and other learning experiences that encourage participants to understand themselves (ME) and collaborate productively with others (WE) in order to apply their knowledge and lead change (IMPACT).

The Wurtele Center is also the institutional home of the Collaborative Innovation Concentration (CIX).

The Wurtele Center for Leadership is partnering with CEEDS to sponsor this year’s Amplify Public Art Competition. We're putting out a Call for Proposals (CFP) for a temporary public art project in the form of banners to be displayed on the construction fencing around the active construction areas of the geothermal project sites on campus to put student voices in conversation with the geothermal campus energy project.
