A significant way Alfred State makes a difference in the larger community is through the efforts of student clubs and organizations. The leadership suite initiative is one way to leverage this community outreach for greater impact. Clubs and organizations that are part of this initiative inspire uninvolved students to become civically engaged, generate positive community impact, and build leaders for the future.
The students in these club/organizations are actively involved in identifying community challenges- and creating solutions. For example, a suite organization might be involved in raising money to fight cancer, promoting blood donation, working with middle school students, or fighting hunger and homelessness. Student organizations apply through a highly competitive process in order to be awarded a Leadership Suite.
These 14 suites are specially designated space for most civically involved and community minded student organizations on campus. They consist of an office area with a transparent glass wall looking out into the open park space area. Organizations use this space to promote their cause, educate others, and launch programming, fundraising efforts, and awareness campaigns. Special leadership programming is made available to Leadership Suite organizations to support development and growth.
Visit the Leadership Suites anytime to speak with students engaged in the community and explore ways to get involved.
