Student Leadership Center

The Student Leadership Center serves as a comprehensive connection point for students, staff, and faculty to access leadership and civic engagement opportunities on campus, in the greater Alfred community, and beyond. Take advantage of the Center’s resources to develop into a leader committed to life-long learning, community engagement, and active citizenship.

The Student Leadership Center, located in the center of campus, is the premier place for students to gather throughout the day in a “one-of-a-kind” designed space dubbed the “Commons” corridor. The Commons corridor places everyone who enters in the middle of a hub of activity enabling students from different majors, ages, and depth of community involvement to be in direct contact with each other; an “in your face” flavor of student engagement.

The Student Leadership Center is the home base for the Alfred State Leadership Program. The Alfred State leadership experience is an interactive process that develops students who are committed to lifelong learning, community engagement, and having a positive impact on the Alfred State campus and in the greater community and beyond. We believe that every student has the potential and the capacity to serve their community through civic engagement.
