New Leaders Guide

The Student Development Office would like to support club leaders by providing them resources and helping them navigate student organization procedures. Below are resources to help you in your role as a new student organization leader.

Thank you for supporting the student organizations on campus by serving as a club leader! Students greatly appreciate the time and effort you volunteer to help them be successful.

Please note that these are student-led organizations, and advisers should serve in an advisory role. Informing students about ECC policies and helping organize the club, especially when student leaders transfer, are critical services that advisers provide. Students are encouraged to take a primary role in the planning of their club events and determining the growth of the club.
