Student Leadership

At Colorado College, student leadership is an essential aspect of our community. 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 they are passionate about, the experience is enhanced which allows these activities to thrive and students flourish.


Student leadership opportunities at CC include:

Colorado College Student Government Association (CCSGA)

CCGSAThis group of 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
