Student Leadership Academy

Student Leadership Academy Graduate

The Office of Student Activities and Wellness (SAW) offers many opportunities for South Texas College students to invest in their development as a leader.

The student will learn to identify their unique leadership style so they can be aware of what practices are most useful for them and what strengths they bring to future employers or academic programs.

Throughout the year, we provide workshops and training, one-on-one consulting with student leaders, interactive experience to spark conversation on leadership and leadership retreats.

Looking to Get Involved?

As an Academy participant, you will meet leaders from our community as well as other motivated students and staff…and the Academy looks great on job qualifications and resumes!
