Student Leadership Institute

Student Leadership Institute

The Student Leadership Institute is a training seminar for El Camino College students that builds and enhances their leadership skills. Participating students are nominated by a faculty and/or staff from a student support program on campus. Students selected have been observed to show a consistent display of involvement on campus and have demonstrated their ability to be a campus leader.

During the Student Leadership Institute, students will refine their resumes, learn the importance of dressing for success, improve their networking skills, and polish their dining etiquette. 

After completing the Student Leadership Institute, students are encouraged to join a club, attend more campus trainings/workshops, and/or conferences. At the end of the semester, students will attend an awards and pinning ceremony and receive a certificate of completion and participation and a pin.
