Foundational Leadership Series

Every fall quarter, SOMeCA offers the Foundational Leadership Series that supports you, as a student leader, in having a successful academic year. As student leaders of your community, you are constantly adapting to an ever-changing and complex environment. Your student organizations are learning spaces filled with opportunities for you and your members to practice addressing challenging and shifting dynamics.

Engaging with these challenges provides you the opportunities to learn skills that not only support your experiences now but will also translate into your future careers post-graduation.

This leadership series is all part of the learning process you will be engaging with at SOMeCA. To find what trainings you need to complete, please view the Pathway Guidelines.

All leadership trainings will be held virtually via Zoom. Once registered, you will receive a Zoom link and a Google Calendar invite.
