 SUNY Student Leadership Academy (SLA) Award

The Student Leadership Academy (SLA) will prepare the next generation of civically-engaged leaders by providing them with the skills, knowledge, and tools needed to successfully navigate and improve an increasing diverse and fractured community. This Academy, designed and delivered by professionals from across SUNY, leverages the collective assets of the system to provide a diverse and prestigious learning and networking opportunity for SUNY students. It will also act as a bridge between students and their career paths, as participants will graduate being able to articulate their personal and professional story to future hiring managers and graduate program directors.

Due to the impact of COVID-19, the originally planned Summer, 3-Day in-person SUNY SLA, will now be held virtually in Fall 2020. Programs will be held on various Fridays and Mondays from 12:00 -2:00 p.m., utilizing the following learning modalities: Seminar Series, Leader Speaker Series, Mentoring, Social Media Campaign, Alumni, and Cohort Connection opportunities.
