Leadership Opportunities

Leadership Opportunities

The Office of Student Activities presents a variety of programs designed to enhance the leadership development of our student leaders. Through a formal leadership series, national leadership conference participation, a Certified Student Leadership Series, an academic course in leadership, and a variety of other means, students will have the opportunity to develop and augment their own personal leadership skills.

Certified Student Leader Program

The Gateway Certified Student Leader Program takes place on Thursdays from Noon-1:30p in S109. This series is coordinated by the Office of Student Activities and paid for with your Student Activity Fee. Please check back for Fall 2020 dates.


Student Organization Training Retreats

Every Fall the Office of Student Activities plans a day of training for all of our student clubs and organizations. We often bring noted trainers and facilitators, an etiquette luncheon, and several workshops.  Students have the opportunity to learn the key skills involved with running a student organization from financial management and parliamentary procedures to recruitment and marketing. Several student organizations request to have an organizational retreat to assist in building a cohesive student organization. The Office of Student Activities and Leadership Programs can assist student organization members and their advisors in the coordination and execution of such team-building activities.


Student Leadership Conference Grants

Gateway Community College, the Office of Student Activities, and the Student Government Association are committed to leadership education. As such, the Student Leadership Conference Grant program was initiated to provide student leaders the opportunity to participate in selected leadership conferences. Student Leadership Conference Grants are available to students to attend and participate in a variety of conferences throughout the year.


New Student Orientation (NSO) Leadership Program

The Office of Student Activities provides comprehensive New Student Orientation programs for all incoming students and their parents or spouses. NSO Leaders will assist in fostering a sense of community and help to identify key areas of the college that all new students should become familiar with. Orientation Leaders will work with students during the program and serve as mentors for their new students throughout the year. Learn more.
