Center for Leadership and Student Involvement (CLSI)

We’re a hub for student organizations on campus. Our mission is to develop ethical, articulate, and effective leaders by helping you build leadership skills through communication, budget management, delegation, and coordination of event and group logistics.
Students share information about clubs at the annual activities fair.

What We Do

CLSI is here to create a healthy and vibrant campus landscape by supporting, challenging, and inspiring Colgate students to become responsible, thoughtful, and engaged citizens.

We advise groups and their leaders in planning the year's educational and social events, to facilitate collaboration between groups, and to provide opportunities for student leadership and skills development. And we have a blast doing it!

Get Involved

There are hundreds of ways to be involved at Colgate. To get started, check out all the student groups on our Get Involved platform. It's all the information you need to get yourself out there.


If you're looking for something to do with a little less commitment, check out what's happening today on the campus calendar.
