The purpose of this session is to share the model and practices of an experiential, cohort-based student leadership program in a community college setting through the perspective of active student leaders. Student Leaders in Civic Engagement (SLiCE) at Salt Lake Community College is the most intensive leadership experience offered through the Thayne Center for Service & Learning. SLiCE Leads are active on campus and in the community for 15-20 hours weekly throughout the fall and spring semesters, with additional commitments over the summer. Foundational components of the SLiCE Program include: - The selection of an issue area as their perspective for exploring the year and direct engagement with a reciprocal community partner. - The provision of as much stackable funding for students as eligible. - A student directed experience that aligns with their career and academic trajectory. - A non-hierarchical student leadership cohort that promotes relationship building, civic responsibility, and teamwork. Through a panel-style conversation, SLiCE Leads will reflect on the importance of being involved in community as part of their community college experience and how they cultivate balance as a whole student. SLiCE Leads will also review their list of recommendations for community colleges developing civic engagement leadership programming.
