Setters Leadership Program (SLP)

The Setters Leadership Program (SLP) was created in Spring 2012 as a premier, three-tiered leadership development and education certificate program open to all Pace University (Pleasantville) students. The Setters Leadership Program is service-focused and grounded in the change process. It is unique to Pace University and designed by Pleasantville staff, faculty, and students. The Setters Leadership Program ultimately advances and influences the student leadership culture on campus.
