Student Leadership Institute
The Student Leadership Institute, a partnership effort between SAC and CSUF, is a certificated leadership training program that has been in existence for over 10 years. Students are required to take 9 workshops over two days covering a range of leadership development topics. Previous workshops included:

All workshops are one or two hours in length and will be conducted by skilled and trained professionals from the greater Santa Ana area and SAC community.
