Application Due March 27, 2017

Columbia College's four week-long leadership programs are the flagship of The Center for Leadership at Columbia College. Rising 9th-12th grade young women are invited to join more than 2,500 women who took their first steps as leaders at Columbia College over the past 26 years. 

Columbia College students are an essential part of the Summer Institute. The Center for Leadership is hiring student leaders ready to make an impact. Counselors must possess a desire to work with young leaders, enjoy a high energy environment, willingness to solve problems and take charge, and have solid communication skills. 

Program dates are June 24-30 and July 8-14, 2017. All counselors must be able to remain on the Columbia College campus during the designated times, including counselor training sessions on Saturdays June 24 and July 8. Candidates will interview with CC alumnae who are former Summer Leadership Institute counselors. Applications will be reviewed by the Center for Leadership professional staff team. The combined scores of the interview and application review will be used to select the counselors.

More information about the Summer Institute can be found here. Questions? Please contact Katherine Swartz Hilton at or 803.979.4097.
