Contemporary Student Leadership
reasons tO attend
For years, ASACC has trained its attendees on the critical components of success for student leaders at community colleges. ASACC focuses on three main themes: leadership, citizenship, and advocacy. Good student leaders, who create good student governments on their campus, must learn the basics of all three of these concepts in order to be successful as student government leaders and later as a community, state, and even national leaders.
Leadership is a broad topic with many different theories and ideas. Why are there so many leaders who consistently refuse to lead? Students will be exposed to leadership theory with a discussion around the practical application of these theories in student leadership and student government setting.
What is citizenship? What does it mean to be a good citizen? What are the best ways to get involved in your community? Explore these questions with your colleagues from around the country. Professionals with decades of experience will lead workshops and forums centered on civic engagement for students now, and in the future.
Advocacy is often seen as “lobbying”, and while lobbying is a component of advocacy there is much, much more to know about serving the students who elected you as their advocate. Advocating for your constituents on your campus, in your local community, with legislators and other state officials, and with Congress on a national level are all critical to your success as a student leader.
