Join the Student Leadership Council


The Student Leadership Council (SLC) is an excellent way to develop skills, influence change, and address the needs of CURENT undergraduate and graduate students.

The organization has several committees with each committee having leadership and support roles for it's members.  With each committee working as a team, the time and effort are minimal and well worth the potential benefit to the students.

Typical Committees include:

  • Student Activity/Event
  • Publications and News
  • Industry Relations
  • Lab Organization & Tours
  • Seminar Organization
  • Education Outreach
