Welcome to the thayne center for student life, leadership & community engagement!

In the Thayne Center, we envision a world in which people's basic needs are met and in which the values of equality and social justice are realized. We believe institutions of higher education have a responsibility to cultivate an engaged citizenry. We are therefore dedicated to empowering our students and faculty to realize they have the knowledge and skills to affect positive change in their community.

We establish capacity-building relationships with community organizations, facilitate service-learning development opportunities for faculty, and coordinate service leadership programs for students who are out to change the world.

We are here to help develop student leaders and make the overall experience on campus better for students. In our office we house the SLCC Student Association, StrengthsQuest, and leadership classes. There are three different pillars that we support, an effective student government, a robust student life, and leadership development. These three pillars are supported by our values of imagination, inclusivity, accountability, making a difference, and teamwork.
