Student Leadership Advocates

Student Leadership Advocates (SLA) is a peer leadership cohort program supported by the Office of Student Life.

SLAs take part in three sequenced levels of experiential leadership education and training, while also providing Ohio State student organizations with facilitation services. As an SLA you will learn more about how you can become a stronger leader, while also helping others become stronger leaders.

In the past year, SLA facilitated over 100 workshops, impacting over 3,000 students.

Among the topics we present are:SLA

  • Team Building
  • Communication and Public Speaking
  • Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI)
  • True Colors
  • Clifton Strengths for Students
  • Time Management and Stress Relief
  • Values Clarification 
  • Goal-Setting
  • Ice Breakers
  • Recruitment and Retention
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Retreat Planning and Facilitation
  • And Many More!
