This program is a student fee funded program, with very minimal costs due to the generosity and time of many faculty and staff across our campus.

What are the time requirements?

The real question is how much time would you like to put into your experience. On average, workshops are 60 minutes, some are longer and service hours are required for every level. For example, at the very minimum, a level 1 certificate can take a total of 13 hours; 5 hours for the 60 minute workshop choices and 8 hours of community service.

Top 7 Questions

I read in Level 4 that there is a leadership experience requirement. Can I count something that I went to last year?

Sometimes. In most cases, if you went through a previous leadership experience that has taken place at CSU, come to the SLiCE office and ask us. There are some you are able to count because we have a copy of the syllabus of that experience

and there are others you might not

be able to count.

Yes.

We are also looking to explore the creation of more interest certificates. If you have a new one in mind, let us know.

We require participants to sign in at each workshop they attend so we can record attendance. We also require participants to complete the Certificate Completion Form.

Does the community service I perform have to be through the REAL Experience?

No.

Community service can be performed individually or with a group. It can also be something you are already doing on your own. When you are ready to notify of us of what your community service project (or projects) was, we will have a form in the SLiCE office for you to complete.

Top 3 Questions

I'm a senior graduating in May, can I fulfill the certificate in time?
