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 Pleasantville students. SLP is service-focused and grounded in the change process. It is unique to Pace and designed by Pleasantville students, faculty, and staff. SLP ultimately advances and influences the student leadership culture on campus.

Application Deadline

Applications are available each year beginning May 1 and close on August 1.

What are the requirements?

  • A minimum GPA of 2.75;
  • Attendance to the kick-off overnight on-campus retreat (last Monday–Wednesday in August), six workshops per semester, a semesterly reception; and
  • Completion of the "Tier Transition" requirements.

What are the benefits of SLP?

  • Leadership competencies you can use in job and internship interviews that will set you apart from other candidates. You will be able to explain and prove to future employers that you are qualified and ready for the professional world—perhaps even more so than current entry-level employees—due to your understanding of the leadership process.
  • Leadership advising opportunities from the leadership advisory board and SLP mentors.
  • SLP jacket and patches (displaying which SLP tiers you have successfully transitioned through), other program giveaways, and apparel.
  • Recognition at graduation, program completion awards, and a special awards ceremony for completing all three tiers.
  • Connections and friendships with other SLP scholars.
