About the CLAS Student Leadership Board
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) Student Leadership Board is a group of students from the College committed to strengthening the academic experience and student community in UConn CLAS. The Board's mission is to serve as liaisons between the Dean and the students in order to enhance communications, academic experiences, and alumni connections while embodying the values of a liberal arts and sciences education.

Opportunities for professional development include leadership experience, project and event management, marketing and communication skill development, student community development, public speaking, and business decision-making.
