Student Leadership Advocates

Student Life’s Department of Leadership & Community Engagement is seeking dedicated, passionate students to join our team as Student Leadership Advocates! SLAs are certified peer educators and dialogue facilitators that contribute meaningfully to the Ohio State community by leading workshops on more than 20 different leadership development topics. These workshops might be requested for student organizations, classrooms, residence halls, sororities, fraternities, and athletic teams, or they might be part of our open registration series titled Leaders Engaging in Actions for Development (LEAD). 

The mission of SLA is to make leadership education more accessible to and inclusive of everyone at The Ohio State University. As an SLA, students develop skills pertaining to inclusive leadership practices, public speaking, collaboration, and more while helping their peers to do the same. SLAs can expect to work an average of 5-8 hours per week, including staff meetings, training sessions, administrative tasks, workshop consultations, and facilitations. 

Applications to become an SLA in the 2024-2025 academic year will open on Thursday, February 1, 2024. If you have any questions, please contact Kala Coyan-McClure at
