SSC Leadership Fellows

The SSC Leadership Fellows program is a year long leadership development opportunity for student leaders. SSC convenes this cohort with support from Student Activities and Leadership Programs. Fellows will take on projects and responsibilities within SSC programs and meet regularly to reflect on their student leadership experiences.

Each term, we host a leadership fellows panel with  students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community leaders. You can watch, listen to or read selected panel transcripts here!

Program Description

  • Students participate in a cohort of 20-25 leaders from within SSC.
