"What can be better and more fun than to be a leader and be always there to give helping hands to others? Being part of the Undergraduate Fellows in Leadership for Justice and Peace is a privilege for me. I believe this world needs us and it is up to us to make it a more desirable and attractive place to live in by spreading words and by manifesting actions of love, peace, equality, tolerance, and justice."

Undergraduate Fellow in Leadership for Justice & Peace 

  • Class of 2017
  • English-Professional Writing major

"Leadership in justice and peace is important to me because I feel that a huge part of contributing to the world as a whole is learning to lead by exemplifying qualities of fairness and preserving peace among groups of people, whether that be within a small community or on a much larger scale."

Samantha Eisdorfer

Samantha Eisdorfer
Undergraduate Fellow in Servant Leadership and Justice & Peace Leadership

  • Class of 2017
  • Music Therapy major

"I made the decision to commit to both Servant Leadership and Justice & Peace Leadership because I believe having a thorough understanding of how to lead in all kinds of different situations is completely invaluable. Servant Leadership can be incorporated into just about every aspect of daily life, and where it can be, it absolutely should be. It does so much good. The difference a really committed servant leader can make in just one day is impossible to measure, but it is undoubtedly huge. Exercising Justice & Peace Leadership is just as important, although it may take more training and time to get to a position that will allow you to make your difference. It provides a slightly more measurable positive outcome to look at, and paves the way for even more leaders of both schools to emerge. Being a leader in both senses is the absolute most rewarding way to spend a lifetime." 

Michael Twist

Michael Twist
Undergraduate Fellow in Servant Leadership

  • Class of 2017
  • Engineering major

"I am committed to Servant Leadership because being a leader and helping others is an important aspect of my life. Whether I am helping a teammate or working on my business, Servant Leadership comes into play. Servant Leadership allows a different way of looking at service and leadership. The "Ten Principles of Servant Leadership" by Robert Greenleaf are great principles to live by. These principles will help me to serve and lead. I hope to continue to improve my skills and to put them to use in my everyday life."
