The Lewis J. Burger Center For Student Leadership And Public Service

Director, (309) 677-2428, The Burger Center represents the University’s commitment to educate and prepare our students for civic responsibility to become committed leaders for the 21st century. By involving our students in a myriad of service activities and leadership seminars, the Center benefits not only Bradley students, but the Central Illinois Community and our society.

The Center has three main components:

  1. Volunteer Services: The Center provides students with resources and programs that make volunteering accessible, including Volunteer Placement Booklets, Service on Saturday events, and the “Pay it Forward” alternative spring break trip.
  2. Leadership Development Programs: Through the Leadership Studies minor, Team Bradley, and a variety of leadership-based campus organizations, the Center provides students with a multitude of ways to develop their skills and increase their effectiveness as a leader.
  3. Student Leadership and Public Service Fellows Program: This scholarship-based program accepts 15 incoming freshmen students annually and strives to instill lifelong leadership skills and civic responsibility in its members through a comprehensive four-year experience.

The Lewis J. Burger Center is home to student organizations including SERVE, LINCS, and STLF and facilitates programs such as Service on Saturday, the “Pay It Forward” tour, Team Bradley, and the Leadership Lifestyles Floor. In collaboration with the College of Education and Health Sciences, the Center co-coordinates the Leadership Studies minor. In addition, the Center provides information on a wide range of peer advising, service learning initiatives and leadership opportunities throughout the United States.

The Center, with support from its Community Advisory Board, promotes service and leadership among the Bradley student body. It provides opportunities for students to be involved in community service and leadership activities and promotes the incorporation of a service component into the curriculum where appropriate.
