Student Leadership Development Program

The North Carolina Community College System - Student Leadership Development Program (SLDP) is an opportunity for select community college students to receive leadership training. In turn, these students will take this knowledge back to their campuses and share with their fellow students. The SLDP will expand the community college education beyond academics, and into awareness of “real world” demands. 

This program will offer community college students a hands-on, educational approach to the many facets of leadership. A six-day institute will be held at William Peace University in Raleigh, June 7-12, 2015 followed by two-day mini-sessions in the fall and spring. Students nominated by their college must apply for acceptance by completing the enclosed Application Form. A screening committee will review application materials and select thirty students to attend the SLDP. Preference will be given to students returning for the 2017-2018 academic year so they can fulfill the SLDP responsibilities. The deadline for nomination/application materials has passed. Nominated students must be 18 years old at the start of the SLDP summer session.
