Programs for orgs like yours

The Center for Student Leadership & Engagement (CSLE) has multiple programs that your organization can participate in with student orgs like yours! From creating a strong base for new orgs to working together in a cohort with fellow student leaders to encourage equity in your student organization, learning alongside leaders and working with campus partners, we have many programs for you!

Org-Celeration

Org-Celeration is a new student organization development program for a select cohort of new organizations each semester.

The program is a cohort model, which allows student leaders to learn from and help each other grow through the transition to a registered student organization to create change on Clemson's campus. The program is housed in the Center for Student Leadership and Engagement. Organizations younger than 3 years can apply!

Student Organization Lab

Brainstorm better together in the Student Organization Lab! During this gathering time, student organization members and leaders brainstorm together to share their knowledge, reach goals, and develop their leadership, enriching the entire student organization community.

Want to strengthen your leadership skills before applying for leadership roles in your student organization?

The Certified Student Leader Program (CSL) is a co-curricular certification program available to any Clemson student looking to explore their leadership ability, connect to campus on a deeper level, and transform their potential to impact the Clemson community. The program is designed to prepare students with basic level of proficiencies in leadership that can be applied to various student leadership opportunities.

Students will be in a cohort of their peers where they can learn and have meaningful discussions together around topics of leadership development. Cohort times will occur on Tuesday or Wednesday nights, depending on which one you select during registration.
