Student Leadership Development


Columbia aims to prepare well-rounded students for life at university and beyond. Therefore in addition to academic learning, we believe it is essential to build a student’s character through leadership training and experiential learning to excel in today’s global competitive world. As a result, we have established the Student Leadership Development (SLD) Office to organize and facilitate exciting, educational programs which provide students with the necessary training and experience to succeed in life.

In each program that is offered by Student Leadership Development, an emphasis is placed on character development and diversity. Our programming seeks to elaborate on how activities and events can develop the individual to greater levels of:

  • Inclusiveness
  • Diversity
  • Honesty & Integrity
  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Peaceful & Positive Conflict Resolution
  • Fairness
  • Caring
  • Optimism
  • Self-Confidence, and Self-Advocacy
  • Perseverance

Students are intentionally recognized for their exemplary character and development in regular ceremonies. SLD coordinates with all departments to provide a holistic atmosphere for this growth.
