About SLS

Students must apply to the SLS program and applications are reviewed by the Student Development committee, who also plan and excute the program. Each of the classes over the four weeks focus on various leadership topics including conflict management, dealing with varying personalities, peer mentorship, and discovering your own leadership style. Classes are led by campus experts, which included Keith Lopez of the Office of Orientation and Transition Programs, Jackie Peila-Shuster of the Education Department, and Chris Leck of the School of Social Work.

Congratulations to all the participants!
