SUNY Empire Student Leadership Institute

We invite you to step up to the challenge of leadership and social change!

The SUNY Empire Student Leadership Institute (SLI) has been established by the former Student Affairs Committee in cooperation with the Office of Student Engagement to enable students to develop, enhance and explore their leadership abilities.

The institute is built on the framework of the social change model of leadership which includes consciousness of self, congruence with others and commitment to the larger community. The SLI is dedicated to empowering our students to develop and enhance their leadership skills, thereby creating positive change in the world.

Focusing on these three areas, selected students will engage in a year-long institute that will help propel them to the next step in their development.
