Student Leadership & Development

Our Mission

Student Leadership and Development (SLD) is committed to enhancing the learning environment at Stanislaus State. To facilitate this mission we provide students with co-curricular learning and leadership development opportunities.

New Student Orientation (NSO)

NSO is a program for incoming Stanislaus State students designed to provide you with information about University requirements, general education requirements, major academic advising and student programs and services. Each NSO includes informational sessions with a variety of Stanislaus State staff and faculty to assist you with academic advising and course registration. Your attendance and participation in your New Student Orientation will greatly enhance your educational experience at Stanislaus State. By the end of the day, you will have a general understanding of the campus.

Leadership Programs

Stanislaus State's leadership programs offers an opportunity for students to develop their leadership skills through two different programs.  

Faculty Mentor Program

The mission of the Faculty Mentor Program is to encourage faculty-student interaction outside-the-classroom through mentoring relationships that improve academic achievement, increase student retention rates, and improve the graduation rates of educationally disadvantaged students.
