How do we define Student Leadership? 

Throughout your time at the University of Toronto Mississauga, you may have been involved in activities outside of the classroom that have developed your skills, expanded your knowledge and contributed to the betterment of our UTM community. These experiences are examples of student leadership, and make you a student leader. 

Student leaders in Canadian higher education institutions are those who take an active role in institutional governance, service delivery, advocacy, community service work, and social change in one or more areas of the university, and whose practices and activities need to be consistent with the values of the university, with the primary aim of making significant contributions to the quality of the student experience, and supports their personal and professional development
