Student Leadership

Student Life offers a variety of opportunities to help support a student's interest in discovering and enhancing their own leadership skills.

Students at Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) can learn and practice student leadership through leadership seminars, a student organization or our annual conference.

STUDENT LEADERSHIP ACADEMY

The Student Leadership Academy (SLA) offers students engaging and interactive learning opportunities to explore the concepts, principles, and practices of effective and ethical leadership. Students are expected to develop an appreciation for ethics, character and civility. The SLA currently offers non-credit leadership programs (Emerging Leaders and IGNITE).

The guiding principles of the Student Leadership Academy are:

  • Leadership is a process, not a position
  • Everyone has the potential to be a leader
  • Leadership is developed through both education and experience.

ONLINE STUDENT LEADERSHIP GUIDE

Can't participate in SLA or attend the leadership conference? Visit our online resource to learn more about leadership. Student Life has partnered with CPCC Library Services to provide an online guide for students to access library materials and external resources related to leadership, including books, videos and websites.

ADDITIONAL LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITY

Career & College Readiness also supports leadership experiences for students in their programs (GED, ESL, Pathways, etc.).
