Alma Mater Would Be Proud

  • Chelsea Smith


Student leadership can be seen in all parts of the world in different campuses' organizations, clubs, or groups. This essay will focus on the historical significance of a Cuban student organization during the Revolution in Cuba. The Federación Estudiantil Universitaria (FEU) and other student-run groups aided the 26th of July Movement to overthrow Cuba’s tyrannical leader, Fulgencio Batista. This essay will then analyze the actions of the Cuban student groups and identify ten key components of student leadership. Student leadership can change society, and the FEU is one exemplary example of change.
