Leadership Opportunities at Columbus State


Club Leadership Program

SEaL supervises/advises up to 40 clubs each semester; beginning this fall, SEaL will offer the Club Leadership Program, a  new programming series designed for club leaders; the program offers training and support to develop leadership skills. Club leaders are invited from each club to participate and develop their club’s success through regular attendance at several unique programs.

This program provides students with a leadership skill set that will help student succeed within their club or in other leadership roles within the community. The Club Leadership Program is aimed toward teaching student leaders the fundamentals of leadership and how to apply those fundamentals to a student's involvement on campus and in the classroom. The program will focus on navigating leadership in college; however, the fundamentals taught in the program can be applied outside the classroom, within the workplace.

Collegiate Leadership Conference of Ohio

CLCO 2013 Logo

Since 2009, the Collegiate Leadership Conference of Ohio (CLCO) is held each November at Columbus State Community College. The annual conference is hosted by Student Engagement and Leadership and the Student Ambassador Leadership Program. CLCO's objective is to reach out to college students across Ohio and teach them leadership skills that can be used in their daily lives and in their future jobs. It is a way to network with other college students who are just as passionate about leadership as a way of life.

CLCO empowers the next generation of college students to develop their leadership skills, construct a professional network, and make a difference through civic and community engagement. Through workshops (including a special track for "First Generation" college students), keynote speakers and community service projects, the conference encourages college students to make history every day by investing themselves in the world around them and by actively participating in their own leadership evolution.

About This Year's Conference

Student Engagement and Leadership (SEaL) formally invites you to attend the 5th annual Collegiate Leadership Conference of Ohio. This day and a half conference will be held on November 14-15, 2014 at Columbus State Community College in the Center for Workforce Development. 

This year's conference will inspire students to "Unlock Your Potential." The conference will include workshops empowering students to uncover the keys to success, including advanced leadership skills and techniques to tap into their greatest potential.

Columbus State Leadership Society (CSLS)


New students, do you want to gain valuable leadership skills? Participate in Columbus States’ very own leadership society designed to enhance the first year experience for students. Students will learn about the four cornerstones in which CSLS is built; Integrity, Passion, Vision and Service.

With a renewed focus toward student success, engagement and retention, CSLS engages students and provides tools for successful learning; involvement increases the value of the college experience because students who choose to get involved in co-curricular activities have a higher success rate, particularly in the perspective of Pascarella and Terenzini; they stated in How College Affects Students (1991), "students who are actively involved in both academic and out-of-class activities gain more from the college experience than those who are not so involved.”

Interested students should stop in Nestor Hall 116 or check their email for an invitation. Replacement applications can be picked up in the SEaL office.

For more information, see the FAQ for requirements and application process.
