2019 Student Leadership Conference

Each year, a Fall Student Leadership Conference is planned by CCCS, the State Student Advisory Council, and Student Life staff from across the System. The conference brings over 100 of our Colorado community college students together to engage in skill-building activities, leadership development exercises, and peer networking opportunities.

This year’s conference theme is: “Everyday Hero – Discovering Your Superpower.” Our goal is to cover the following student learning outcomes throughout the duration of the conference experience: Advocacy & Activism, Critical Thinking, Cultural Competency, Effective Communication, Professionalism, and Realistic Self-Appraisal.
