    Student Leadership Network (SLN)

    The Office of Student Activities & Leadership Development offers different leadership development opportunities for students throughout the academic year. These programs are at no cost to Dean students (unless otherwise noted).

    Students are welcome to participate in one or all of the following opportunities created by SLN:

    Dean College's Annual Leadership Conference
    Held during the fall semester, this one-time event is the beginning of students' leadership journey at Dean. Presentation topics vary per year, but the idea of building a strong leadership foundation for students is the same. This also provides students with the ability to network with staff members from colleges around New England. 

    Leadership Workshops
    What better way to increase/refine your leadership knowledge than by attending a workshop led by a Dean College staff member? These workshops were created to help students understand skills that are important to shape them as leaders. Topics include: time management, conflict resolution, diversity/inclusion and interviewing skills.

    Speaker Series
    Looking to expand your knowledge about a certain topics? Our speaker series invites professional outside of the Dean College community to share their experiences to help students understand how to utilize the leadership skills they possess to be successful in life.

    National Society of Leadership & Success (NSLS)
    Founded in 2001, the Society has over 492 chapters at universities and colleges around the world making an impact in their communities. NSLS's mission statement is "We build leaders who make a better world."

    Since beginning a chapter on the Dean College campus in the spring of 2013, we have inducted over 260 students into NSLS.

    NSLS is by invitation only. Students must have a 2.2 GPA in order to be eligible to participate in the society. Please note that there's a one-time membership fee of $85. For more information, please check out NSLS's national website.
