Student Services

Student Affairs is responsible for all co-curricular programs, housing and residential life, health services, new student orientations, Work Study Scholarships service positions, and the Webster Leads Program.

The team consists of the Student Service Coordinator, the Resident Assistant, the Global Program Coordinator and the Student Assistant. We respond to student concerns and problems of all varieties, make referrals to the appropriate administrative resources, advise on policies and stay involved in all judicial affairs proceedings.

When planning and organizing co-curricular activities throughout the year to enhance the campus community, we welcome volunteers to help out and encourage participation in these events. Annual events include the Graduation Ceremony, BBQ's, Thanksgiving dinner, Holiday evenings, SGA events, European Webster football tournament, Community Service Day and others.

Christine Benninger is Student Services Coordinator at the Leiden Campus.

The WebsterLEADS Program Requirements

Core Components

Achieving the WebsterLEADS Leadership Certificate requires completion of the Core Components below, repeating two components, and additional Webster Leiden requirements.

The Core Components of the program include:


Participants take one course during their Webster career and it is normally taken in the second year of study in Leiden.

EDEX 2750 Student Leadership Development (3cr.)

A semester-long course in leadership skills assessment, leadership theory, interpersonal communications, leading in a diverse community, teamwork, ethical decision making, motivation, organizational dynamics, goal setting, and promotion. May be taken as part of the leadership certificate program or separately. Prerequisite: Permission of the coordinator of the leadership program, Student Services Coordinator; Christine Benninger


These provide interactive, reflective, and learning community approaches to understanding leadership. The Program Director at each campus can tell you specific dates for retreat for your campus. Webster European Retreat is usually held during Fall Break for Second and Third year students.

Senior Retreat is held for fourth year students in the Spring semester and is required for the LEADS program. 3rd year students may participate with prior approval from the program coordinator.


Workshops are offered at key points throughout the year and will focus on career-related issues such as personal budgeting, resume writing, networking, and interviewing. Certificate participants must attend four workshops to complete this particular requirement. Program Directors will promote workshop opportunities on each campus throughout the year.


The most common way is that students complete forty hours of service with a non-profit agency or organization that is local to the campus community - or with a group somewhere else (perhaps near home) with whom they already have an existing relationship. Students submit a proposal for their SLP that must receive approval of the Program Director at the campus where the service will take place, and will complete reflection of their experience when it is completed.


The Practical Leadership Experience (PLE) is a concrete application of a student's leadership knowledge and skills that enhances the campus community and directly contributes to campus student life. Students are required to complete a PLE in a position of leadership on campus, which must least a minimum of a full academic semester (exceptions made for Orientation Leaders at any campus).

Leiden Campus Requirements

  • NSO Student Team Participation
  • All LEADS students will be required to attend one session per year in and participate in an open discussion on Dealing with Ethical Dilemmas on Campus.
  • Participation in Town Hall Meetings

  • Participation in the Webster European Summit when held in Leiden (once every three years)
