Student Leadership Institute

The Student Leadership Institute is a paid opportunity that offers leadership and skills-building training to empower participants to engage in the higher education policy process, network with professionals, and advocate on critical higher education issues that directly impact them. Through training and advocacy sessions, student leaders are equipped with information and tools to be agents of social change within their own college campus. Student Leaders will also have the opportunity to participate in virtual advocacy events and speak in front of system-wide governing Board and local community college Board meetings. Applications are due Friday, September 16, 2022. Apply for the 2022-23 Cohort
