CC Student Leadership Opportunities

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.

The Honor Council

The Honor Code applies to all assignments completed for credit, and any potential code violation is the concern of the Honor Council. The Honor Council is the student-run organization that maintains and enforces the Honor Code through educating the campus community and administering Honor System procedures.

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.

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 fostering inclusive communities, mediating conflict, program development, as well as transferable skills related to time management and effective communication.

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.

Priddy Trip Leaders

Priddy Experience Trips spend their time in small groups of 8-12 incoming students. Each group is led by 2-3 upperclassman leaders who are passionate about helping introduce new students to CC.

The Outdoor Recreation Committee (ORC)

The Outdoor Recreation Committee (ORC) offers student led outdoor activities that include group hiking, camping, backpacking, canyoneering, cross-country skiing, back-country skiing, cycling, kayaking, ice climbing and rock climbing. During block breaks and spring break, ORC offers at least one off-campus trip.

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.

Accessibility Resources Student Leadership Council

The Accessibility Resources Student Leadership Council assists in providing disability awareness and programming to the Colorado College community. The Council also provides input on policies, procedures, and initiatives under the responsibility of the office of Accessibility Resources, as needed.

The Sophomore Advanced Initiative for Leadership (SAIL)

The Sophomore Advanced Initiative for Leadership (SAIL) program is a leadership development initiative open to all sophomore students and trained junior and senior peer leaders. The SAIL program focuses on creating beneficial connections between sophomores, peer leaders, and campus partners who can aid in their academic, personal, and vocational well-being.
