The office of Student Experience and Leadership is accepting applications for Scottsdale Community College’s Council of Student Leaders (CSL) until Friday, Jan. 20.

CSL is a form of student government at Scottdale CC.

Desiree Farnal, student services analyst for diversity, equity, inclusion programing and events at SCC explained what the council does.

“They primarily assist our student clubs and organizations with funding for each club’s events, any programs they want to put on on campus, and they also plan their own campuswide events as well,” Farnal said.

Farnal said the council is generally comprised of four to six students that include officers and senators-at-large.  Applications are accepted at the beginning of each fall and spring semester.

Farnal indicated that this semester, the council is looking for up to four new members to help represent the student body.

According to Farnal, the benefits that student leaders receive from the program are severalfold.

“This is an opportunity for students to hold a leadership position on campus.  They serve as a voice for SCC students. They attend Maricopa student senate meetings at the District.  They meet regularly with campus leaders.  So there’s a lot of opportunity for them to engage and interact with high-level administrators and plan events and gain that experience,” Farnal said.

The council meets every Thursday from 12:00-1:00 p.m.

Applications can be picked up and submitted at the Office of Student Experience and Leadership (SC-185) located within SCC’s Center for Global and Civic Engagement in the Student Center.
