The Southern Oregon College Student Leadership Summit was established in 2012 by the student leadership advisors at Umpqua Community College, Southwestern Oregon Community College and Rogue Community College. 

The idea was to provide a one-day leadership conference for the student leaders at our three colleges.  We wanted something that was convenient, low-cost, would bring our students involved/interested in leadership together and meet the needs of emerging student leaders. Thus, the Southern Oregon College Student Leadership Summit was born!

Today, the Summit is now a part of the Oregon Student Leadership and Activities Professionals (OSLAP) offerings to students interested in developing their skills while networking with students in the state.

Umpqua Community College hosted the first summit in spring 2013, since then, the following colleges have hosted:

  • 2013 (fall) - Southwestern Oregon Community College
  • 2014 - Rogue Community College
  • 2015 - Klamath Community College
  • 2016 - Southwestern Oregon Community College
  • 2017 - Umpqua Community College (expanded to two days to incorporate the OCCSLA Fall Conference, which was scheduled to take place in September 2017 and was cancelled due to the fires in the Columbia Gorge)
  • 2018 - Rogue Community College
  • 2019 - Umpqua Community College
