Leadership Exploration

The Office of Student Leadership, Involvement, and Civic Engagement (SLICE) offers many opportunities for Carnegie Mellon students to invest in their development as a leader.  Throughout the year, we provide overnight retreats, workshops and trainings, one-on-one consulting with student leaders, and interactive experiences to spark conversation on leadership topics.

Additionally, our office recognizes and celebrates our students’ contributions to the Carnegie Mellon University community and beyond via the Greek Awards, Student Organization Awards and Recognition program (SOAR), and the Senior Leadership Recognition process.
