Leadership Conference

Each spring, the Office of Student Life at Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) takes a group of students for a weekend-long leadership training. A powerful growth experience awaits you at the Student Leadership Conference! Are you ready to blaze a trail?

The CPCC Student Leadership Conference provides an exceptional learning opportunity for student leaders who are involved in or are interested in serving in a leadership role in any campus student organization.


The 2016 Leadership Conference is set for April 1-3.

Applications are due on Wednesday, March 16 by 5pm to any Student Life Office.  Be sure to include the $20.00 application fee, completed Application, and completed Medical Release form.


The Leadership Conference is designed to:

  • Recruit quality student leaders for the upcoming academic year.
  • Create camaraderie and team work among student leaders.
  • Reduce cultural barriers among student leaders.
  • Give all participants an opportunity for personal growth and development.

You can expect to be introduced to experiences to help you become more self-affirming, self-directed, open and empathetic in your communication with others, and aware of strategies for planning and implementing campus activities.

The three-day training workshop will include mini-lectures, group activities, small group discussions and sharing, directed conversations, a group-interaction/low-ropes course, and informal interaction with fellow participants and faculty/staff facilitators.
