Office of Student Affairs Leadership Opportunities for Students

The Advisors Circle

The Advisors Circle consists of advisors of each of the clubs. The Advisors share information and work together to enhance student leadership development.

mandatory Club Orientations

The Office of Student Affairs offers an orientation for new and continuing clubs and organizations for clubs and their advisors. The orientation contains a lot of useful information to help inform them about resources on campus, and policies which may impact them. It is also a great way to meet other club leaders on campus.

CLUB CITY: City College Student Affairs Club Leadership Development series

We also invite student clubs to participate in workshops offered throughout the year in a program called CLUB CITY. Through various programs, student organizations learn the basics of how to run a meeting, event planning and much more, as part of the CLUB CITY Leadership Development series. All students are encouraged to attend these sessions.

Student Leadership Summit

Meet and learn from local community leaders on a number of leadership topics.

The Student Leadership Summit aims to provide students with an opportunity to develop their skills leading and working in a diverse student organization while networking with peers across campus. The student-centered summit traditionally includes a keynote and a closing speaker, as well as break-out sessions addressing a variety of leadership topics and skill-sets such as:

  • Leadership in a diverse team environment
  • Diversity and inclusion
  • Conflict resolution
  • Professionalism
  • Cross cultural awareness and sensitivity
  • Team building
  • Public speaking
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Networking
  • Ethical decision making
  • Motivating yourself and others

Opportunities to develop your leadership skills are endless! The Student Affairs Office provides you with numerous programs and events to develop your leadership potential.
