Student Leadership Institute (SLI) Course

Our free leadership course gives you the chance to develop these skills for personal and professional growth. We enhance your knowledge of leadership through the humanities, hands-on activities, dynamic speakers, conferences and retreats.

Our 12-week interactive online course includes a monthly live session that begins the second week of each semester. Students will receive continuing education units and a graduation cord upon completion of the course requirements. The continuing education units can be used for university applications, scholarships and resumes.

If you meet the minimum 2.0 GPA requirement, you are welcome to join the Student Leadership Institute. Register with your advisor or contact your campus leadership coordinator.
