The Center for Leadership and Involvement (CLI) strives to enhance the student experience through active and diverse engagement opportunities in the Wesleyan community. The CLI supports the mission of the College by overseeing functional areas that contribute to the student experience including, but not limited to, campus involvement programs, Student Government Association, and student leadership development through the Leaders in Training (LIT) student cohort.
CLI works with the Division of Student Affairs to promote all major student activities to the campus community through Stall Walls and Student Life newsletters. Many student programs and events are developed by student groups and organizations. The CLI serves as a resource for these groups, advising them on all regulations and procedures as stated in the Student Organization Manual and supporting their development, training, and funding. This includes assistance with the conception of new organizations, writing and updating constitutions, funding and resources for campus events, training, and more. In addition, the CLI staff serve as primary advisors for the Campus Activity Board who host large, campus wide programs for the Wesleyan community.
The Center provides students with a variety of programs, workshops, and services to help them develop key leadership skills outside of the classroom. The LIT program is a four-year, application-based student leadership program that provides direct, hands-on leadership development opportunities for undergraduate students in collaboration with other major campus departments. Students in the LIT program often serve as orientation leaders, Student Government Association executives, servant leaders, resident advisors and in other leadership positions around campus. Additionally, the CLI hosts leadership workshops throughout the semester for all students to develop and grow in their leadership styles.
The Student Government Association (SGA) is the student body’s representation before administrators, faculty, the board of trustees, and alumnae. All members of SGA are elected by their peers each year. In addition to tackling policy issues that matter to Wesleyan students, SGA approves new student organizations, addresses student concerns, and hosts programs and workshops to benefit the campus community. For more information or questions about SGA, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Center for Leadership and Involvement commits to centering student experiences in all of their community programming and ensuring that Wesleyan's students feel heard, valued, and prioritized in all student life initiatives. We commit to reviewing our programming, campus traditions, language, and systems with a discerning eye in order to build a safe and inclusive environment. Additionally, we commit to continual education and research in best theories and praxis of anti-racism, and commit to being held accountable when and if we get it wrong.
