Student Leadership

Whether faculty, staff, or student, there is something that makes each of our hearts sing. For this reason, student leadership is one of Colorado College's highest priorities. We believe all students deserve the chance to lead by example in chasing their own passions, and offer as many opportunities as possible for them to do so. When CC students are given the chance to introduce others to the activities that set them on fire, these activities thrive and students flourish.

Student leadership opportunities at CC include:

Colorado College Student Government Association (CCSGA)

This group of 16 students is responsible for representing the students of Colorado College by addressing their concerns and supporting their endeavors. CCSGA acts as a resource for student groups, fosters a safe and spirited community, and cultivates relationships between CC and the greater Colorado Springs area.

All-College Committees

Composed of staff, faculty, and students, these nine committees collectively assess, discuss, and recommend policies for the current state of the CC campus. The all-campus committee positions allow students an indispensable opportunity to be an integral part of the process.

Community-Engaged Leadership (CEL) Certificate

The Community-Engaged Leadership (CEL) Certificate is designed to assist you to focus and develop your interests and abilities in areas related to service, social justice, leadership and public engagement. 

Resident Advisors (RAs)

RAs form the backbone of the CC community. These student advisors work with the Residential Life Coordinators of each on-campus residence building to enhance the quality of life in our halls, houses, and apartments. As RAs, students gain important experience in working on a team; managing time, conflict, and responsibility; and communicating well.

Student Organizations

Positions of leadership within CC student groups can give you an opportunity to pursue excellence in your areas of interest. Your choice of more than 100 student groups gives you the ability to engage in anything you like, and cater your level of commitment according to your availability and enthusiasm.
