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.
Applications are available each summer and close prior to the start of each academic year.
What are the requirements?
- A minimum GPA of 2.5;
- Incoming first-year and rising sophomores qualify to be SLP scholars, while rising juniors and seniors qualify to be SLP mentors;
- Attendance to the kick-off overnight off-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.
