Men's Leadership Series

University Residences launched the Men's Leadership Series (MLS) in 2017, following the success of the Women's Leadership Series. Men who show potential as future leaders are nominated either by a peer, staff or faculty member, or even themselves to be part of this special group.

After the committee reviews all of the nominations, you'll be notified of your acceptance into the next class of MLS. You will then receive invitations to special events, such as banquets, where you will hear from keynote speakers and participate in breakout sessions and projects. On Martin Luther King, Junior Day, you'll join the participants of the Women's Leadership Series (WLS) and work on a community service project.

Students with David Boudia

You'll also have the opportunity to receive mentorship from our faculty and professional staff who volunteer their time each year to motivate young Boilermakers. It's exciting when we witness new bonds of friendship and professional networking that is mutually beneficial to everyone involved in this unique program.

Past speakers have included Purdue alum and Olympic Diver David Boudia, Purdue Police Chief John Cox, University Chief Legal Counsel Steve Schultz, as well as CEOs and Vice Presidents of several businesses and organizations.
