Cultural Connections Leadership Program
What is the Cultural Connections
Cultural Connections is a student-led leadership program (CCLP) intended to get you acclimated to life at Springfield College and within the greater community. CCLP is designed for first-year and incoming transfer students to make meaningful friendships. Students from all identities (BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, first-generation, etc.) are encouraged to participate in this experience.
This program consists of a free, three-day pre-orientation followed by six weeks of mentorship from student leaders across campus. Students will then have the chance to engage in leadership opportunities like community building, intercultural exploration, and advocacy. Participating in CCLP will get you an early start in connecting with student clubs on campus.
The goal of CCLP is to support new students with a smooth transition to college. By connecting them to the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the broader campus community, and additional resources, CCLP will enhance the cultural, social, and educational experience at Springfield College.
Participating in the Cultural Connections pre-orientation program requires full commitment during those days. All costs for food and materials needed during the program are covered by the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
