If you have a passion for leadership or have an interest in being a positive part of the community, Student Leadership, Involvement & Community Engagement is the organization for you.
SLiCE offers several opportunities for students to develop skills in leadership, diversity, ethics and community service.
Including classes, workshops, retreats and hands-on involvement with the community, SLiCE is dedicated to providing unique and meaningful experiences that enrich the lives of the participants and those in which they interact.
â€œStudents who become involved in campus service activities are generally happier,â€ said SLiCE Director Pamela Sampson.
â€œThey have a sense of purpose and commitment. Being involved in projects with other students also creates fond memories.â€
Anderson said that anyone can participate in a SLiCE activity.
â€œYou donâ€™t have to consider yourself a strong leader to contribute something to society,â€ she said. â€œWe welcome everybody, and if we donâ€™t have something that interests you we can certainly point you in the right direction.â€
Last year 17,000 students served a collective 300,000 hours to the community locally and across the nation.
