Six different programs are run through the LCSL including Maryland Lead, Terps for Change, America Reads*America Counts*Partners in Print, Alternative Breaks, Voices of Social Change, and Leadership Studies.

The LCSL aims to promote socially responsible leadership, which is a form of leadership that not only advances group goals but also focuses on building up communities and the environment. Students strive to become socially responsible leaders through leadership conferences, a leadership minor, or various service-learning projects. These opportunities allow students to achieve social mindfulness, integrity, and self-awareness.
