SUNY Student Leadership Academy (SLA) Fall 2021

Looking to enhance your leadership skills?

The Student Leadership Academy (SLA) will prepare the next generation of civically-engaged leaders by providing them with the skills, knowledge, and tools needed to successfully navigate and improve an increasing diverse and fractured community. This Academy, designed and delivered by professionals from across SUNY, leverages the collective assets of the system to provide a diverse and prestigious learning and networking opportunity for SUNY students. It will also act as a bridge between students and their career paths, as participants will graduate being able to articulate their personal and professional story to future hiring managers.

Online seminars will be held on various Fridays from 1 -3 pm throughout the Fall semester (October 1-December 3). For more details view our online form.

Eligibility: Eligible students (undergraduate and graduate) will need to be available for at least 6 of the 7 offered sessions. In order to maintain an attendance record and ensure students are engaged in the sessions, a brief survey will be sent following each session.
