Student Leadership Conference

Claremont McKenna College - CA, California
President: Pamela Gann

The Student Leadership Conference was designed to help provide those who serve in leadership positions – student government officers, club and organization presidents, athletic team captains, and resident assistants – with the basic skills they will need to be successful. The Conference helps students recognize that they have, can, and should exercise responsibility for themselves and for others. The programming has included workshops and sessions, which address topics such as: ethics, establishing and managing priorities, self-assessments, community service and volunteerism; and diversity. The Conference has been a very useful tool for helping students learn how to help themselves, learn to respect the rights and opinions of others, and learn that to make a difference they must be proactive.


As always, we are such fans of Campus Compact (both national and state chapters). Without your assistance, we could not have achieved many of the milestones we have enjoyed over the past two years. Among many other developments, these milestones include hiring a full-time Service-Learning Coordinator; forming a University-wide advisory committee that includes representatives from each school and from the community; and creating a course development series for faculty and their community partners."
