The Office of Volunteerism and (Student) Leadership (OVAL) was established to help students develop the knowledge and skills to serve their communities; to provide them with service opportunities; and to encourage them to become active local and global leaders. OVAL provides leadership training and service experiences in support of Wake Tech’s core values of accountability, respect, responsibility, and collaboration. 

OVAL’s vision is to create an infrastructure that will raise awareness of the critical needs of the community; promote collective responsibility; and cultivate lifetime leadership, learning, and activism for positive social change.
