Student Leaders

The Student Leadership Program enhances students' first-year experience in the Student Support Services program.

Student Leaders help freshmen transition to a college environment by providing them with the emotional, social, and personal support essential to the successful completion of an academic degree.

Student Leaders are students who have successfully completed training in paraprofessional counseling skills and know the ins and outs of the program. They host events, present workshops, keep in contact with their mentees, and attend ongoing leadership training sessions.
